Authorities have captured the man who escaped from a Shenandoah Valley prison, and was last spotted in Page County.

33-year-old Donald Franklin Estes was serving a sentence in Middle River Regional Jail for third offense petit larceny out of Rockingham County at the time of his escape; he failed to return from a work-release assignment in Hinton, and was last seen in the Luray area earlier in February. Estes was captured Friday in Texas with an accomplice, Patti Lynn Lucas. She was arrested with Estes and charged with aiding in his escape.
