Darrell Franklin Has the Latest on the Captured Escapee on Hwy 79


The search for a patient who escaped from the North Texas State Hospital this morning is now over.

Darrell Franklin is at the scene where authorities finally stopped him after he stole a Wichita Falls Police unit and lead them on a chase.

That's right Doug and Gwyn. Emergency Management officials issued a Code Red alert this afternoon for Cody Workman.

At around 9:30 this morning Workman was being transferred from one State Hospital building to another when Sheriff David Duke says he managed to scale the fence and get away.

They along with the Wichita Falls police department searched the area on foot and with a drone for hours.

Now here with me is Wichita Falls Police Sergeant Harold McClure.
