The Pettis County Sheriff’s Office has announced this morning that they have taken escaped inmate Brandon McGee, 29, into custody without incident Wednesday morning at an eastern Sedalia residence. McGee was discovered missing last week when jail staff found a control insert removed from a shower stall shortly before 10:00 p.m. on July 25th.

McGee has been returned to the Pettis County Jail where he will await trial on the escape charge as well as his existing charges.
