DEERFIELD, N.Y. -- A tweet early Friday morning from New York State Police confirms an escaped parolee from Seneca County, who is believed to have local roots, is back in custody.
Kevin Witt was located around midnight Friday along Route 326 in the Town of Aurelius, in Cayuga County.
A local search began Thursday afternoon, when the Department of Corrections Officers were reportedly searching for him near Walker Road, in Deerfield. Residents reached out to NEWSChannel 2 on Thursday, saying Witt may have family that lives in the area, though, we have not been able to confirm that detail with authorities.
On Monday, Nov. 9, New York State Police alerted the media that Kevin Witt escaped from the Willard Drug Treatment campus, and may have been heading toward Ithaca.
