TUCSON, Ariz. -- Pima County authorities have recaptured an escaped jail inmate.

The Sheriff's Department says deputies took Robert Nelson into custody late Sunday at a residence where the department says he was hiding.

Nelson did not return to the jail after a court-ordered release for a doctor's appointment.

He now faces an escape charge.
