A man wanted by the Iowa Department of Corrections for failing to return to a work release facility in Des Moines is back in custody.

Twenty-three-year-old Corey Dreier didn’t come back to Fort Des Moines when he was originally scheduled to on Sunday. He was placed on escape status, but officials say he did return to the facility around midnight Sunday.

He was serving a 25-year sentence on a first degree burglary conviction.
