Connecticut inmate who went missing is found

ENFIELD, Conn. (AP) A Connecticut prison inmate who walked away from a furlough program at a community college over the weekend has been found.

Prisons officials say 45-year-old Christopher Somsky was apprehended at a hospital at about 11 p.m. Sunday. He was seeking treatment for a hip injury authorities think he sustained while on the run.

After Somsky is medically cleared and discharged, he will be transferred to Northern Correctional Institution and reviewed for placement under the highest level of supervision.

A prisons spokeswoman Somsky escaped Saturday afternoon while at a second chance day program at Asnuntuck Community College in Enfield.

Somsky is considered a low-risk offender. He's serving a maximum nine-year sentence for second-degree robbery handed down in 2015.

Community-based prison furlough programs across the state have been suspended, pending a review.
