Albertville police captured two inmates who were reported missing from a prison facility in Decatur.

The Department of Corrections said police arrested David Hopkins and Michael Worsham this afternoon. Details on their capture weren't immediately available.

The 40-year-old Hopkins is serving a life sentence for theft in Madison County. Worsham is 36 and serving 20 years for forgery in Marshall County, where Albertville is located.

Prison officials say both men were missing during a head count performed Wednesday morning at a work release center in Decatur.
