JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A man who escaped from the North Dakota State Hospital in Jamestown enjoyed only about a half hour of freedom.

Police Chief Scott Edinger tells The Jamestown Sun that 18-year-old Vance Mey escaped from the hospital's sex offender unit about 9:30 a.m. Monday. Officers responding to a tip captured him about 30 minutes later in a ravine.

Edinger says Mey surrendered without incident and was returned to the hospital.
