DESOTO COUNTY, MS (WMC) -

The man who escaped custody in front of the Hernando courthouse is back in custody Wednesday morning.

J.C. Moyer slipped away from DeSoto County deputies just before noon Tuesday.

He was at the courthouse for an appearance related to drug charges.

Deputies searched the area around the courthouse, even calling in a helicopter in an effort to track Moyer down, but after a couple hours, deputies called off the search.

Investigators tell us they found and booked Moyer early Wednesday morning.
