PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities in Florida have captured one of two inmates who tunneled their way out of an Alabama jail.

Chilton County Sheriff John Shearon says they escaped Sunday after breaking apart a steel stool inside a cell and using it as a tool to chip away concrete from around a window to the outside.

A man wanted in the disappearance of UFC fighter Walt Harris' stepdaughter has been apprehended in Florida, but the whereabouts of the woman he's accused of abducting remained a mystery Friday.

Ibraheem Yazeed was arrested and booked into the Escambia County Jail early Friday. Jail records show he's being held as a fugitive after being charged in Alabama with first-degree kidnapping in the disappearance of 19-year-old Aniah Blanchard. She was last seen at a gas station in Auburn, Alabama, on Oct. 23.
