2 inmates accused of jail escape returned to Ga.

SWAINSBORO, Ga. -

Authorities say two men accused of escaping from a Georgia county jail and later caught in Iowa have now been returned to Georgia.

Sheriff's officials say they were part of a group of 6 inmates accused of escaping from the Emanuel County Jail on Nov. 10. All six have been recaptured.

Authorities say the last two missing inmates -- 24-year-old Matthew Findley and 26-year-old Jeffery Webb -- were found by the U.S. Marshal's Eastern Iowa Fugitive Task Force in Fort Dodge, Iowa.

The Augusta Chronicle reports that Findley and Webb on Wednesday made their first court appearance in Georgia on their escape charges.

Sheriff's officials in Georgia say the six prisoners had escaped from the jail in Swainsboro after a plumbing worker at the jail left a door unlocked.
