BECKLEY - An inmate who lost contact with prison authorities is back behind bars Saturday.

Vernon Clower, 26, of Raleigh County, was captured by staff at the Beckley Correctional Center. 

Clower lost contact with staff on a furlough day, which is time off given to some of the jail's work release program participants. 

He turned up at his furlough residence later and was returned to jail. 

It is unknown if Clower will face additional charges. He's currently serving one to ten years for breaking and entering.
