MACON COUNTY, Tenn. — The fugitive just added to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation’s Top 10 Most Wanted list has been captured.

Dylan Ferguson was located in Hartsville, Tennessee, just south of Macon County.

Matthew White and Jeffrey Strong, the two inmates who escaped with him, are still on the run.

The trio escaped from the Macon County Jail around 2 a.m. Wednesday after they pulled down a speaker from the ceiling of their cell, climbed into ductwork and got away. They eventually stole a Ford pickup, but then ditched it near a creek.

On Wednesday, there were reports that one of the inmates had been recaptured, but that information turned out to be false.
