CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia corrections officials have suspended five guards without pay following an escape Oct. 25 that wasn't noticed for about 36 hours at South Central Regional Jail in Charleston.

The Regional Jail and Correctional Facility Authority says the system's medical provider, PrimeCare, advised that it fired an employee who was assigned there.

Authorities say 44-year-old Todd Wayne Boyes of Caldwell, Ohio, escaped two days before his scheduled sentencing on charges including fleeing and possession of a stolen car.

According to investigators, the 5-foot-6, 220-pound Boyes obtained khaki pants and a dark green or grey jacket he wore to escape by posing as a civilian or jail trusty.

Three end-of-shift head counts failed to note his disappearance.

Border authorities say Boyes was caught Sunday in Nuevo Laredo, Mexico.
