An Iowa inmate’s escape ends with his capture north of Geneseo Sunday morning.  

Illinois State Police’s Jason Wilson said they were notified about 7:30 Monday morning that Justin James Kestner was missing from the Iowa Fort Madison prison. A vehicle likely stolen by Kestner was found by the Henry County Sheriff’s Department.

About 9:50am, during a search, Kestner was spotted by a Trooper walking Illinois Route 82, a half mile south of I-80. He fled into a cornfield but was captured when he came out.
