There have been just nine escapees from Blackburn Correctional Complex in two years, but three of those have been in the past two weeks.

Officers said John Stamper escaped Saturday and they found him Sunday in a field nearby the prison. 

Officials at Blackburn said he is the fifth this year. 

On August 3, Paul Nance and Cody Allison walked away from the complex, according to data on escaped inmates.

Nance was serving 30 years for receiving stolen property, among other charges.

Allison was serving 20 years for burglary.

On January 20, police said Billy Rose walked away from the minimum security prison.

On January 5, ABC 36 reported Robert Vick was the first to break out of the prison in 2014. 

All of the inmates who walked away from the prison were later caught by law enforcement.

Prison officials said they have incarcerated about 2,370 inmates since 2013.  That means around 0.4 percent have walked off. 

Officials said Stamper is facing additional charges of second-degree burglary and escape.
