A convict from Beaver Creek was located yesterday after escaping on Sunday.

OPP began investigating the elopement of an inmate that had been serving a sentence at Beaver Creek Minimum Security Institution using the Canine Unit and Emergency Response Team (ERT) that searched the area well into the night but ultimately determined that he had been picked up.

Yesterday, the Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement (ROPE) team successfully located 56 year-old Gordan Putnam in Mississauga, and brought him back into custody. He is facing one count of being unlawfully at large and will appear in a Court of Justice today.
