An escapee from Oskaloosa County has been recaptured in Walton County.
Acting on an anonymous tip, Walton County deputies surrounded the home of 18-year-old Eric Dewayne Russell near Paxton and took him into custody.
Russell escaped from a juvenile detention facility in Fort Walton Beach last Friday.
Since fleeing from the treatment center, Russell had eluded capture after being spotted in south Alabama and northern Walton County.
