A jumpsuit was found outside the facility’s secured area and, after a headcount, officers concluded that it was Wilson who was missing.

Wilson was later seen by a civilian wearing only boxer shorts as he attempted to wave down a vehicle.

Several law enforcement agencies banded together to find Wilson, and he was eventually returned to deputies by his parents.

Wilson was transported to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center.
