STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) - A 54-year-old man who'd fled a South Dakota prison facility more than a year ago has been found in northwest Iowa.

Police in Storm Lake say David Lee, originally from Minneapolis, was captured Friday. Officers had been tipped by authorities in nearby Cherokee that Lee might be traveling by car through the area.

A vehicle matching the description was found parked near a Storm Lake apartment building. Police say Lee fled when he realized officers were in the area looking for him. He was found hiding under a mattress.

Lee is under Cherokee custody, pending extradition to South Dakota. He faces multiple charges, including possession of stolen property. Court records do not list an attorney.

Police say Lee walked away from a Yankton minimum-security facility on Feb. 8 last year.
