GARDEN CITY, Kansas (AP) – Garden City authorities say a Kansas inmate who was mistakenly released in Missouri has been recaptured in Garden City.

Police say 36-year-old Sean McKenzie was arrested Thursday when officers responded to a report of a child in need of care. McKenzie allegedly was living at a home under several aliases. He was booked into Finney County jail and could face new charges related to the abuse of his girlfriend’s daughter.

A 32-year-old woman at the home was arrested on possible charges of aggravated child endangerment and obstructing apprehension.

Authorities have been searching for McKenzie since March, when he was mistakenly released in Vernon County, Missouri, after theft charges there were dropped.

McKeinzie also escaped in Sedgwick County in 2012, and was recaptured a week later.
