      NC inmate who disappeared from work release caught in Conway

      Ronald Billings

      Authorities say a Lincoln Correctional Center inmate who disappeared from a work release program has been recaptured.

      The N.C. Department of Corrections said 38-year-old Ronald Billings was captured around 9:45 p.m. in Conway, S.C. He's now in custody in the Horry County jail.

      A statement from the department said a woman identified as Delora Miller is facing charges of aiding and abetting escape.

      Officials said Billings was serving a seven-year prison sentence for breaking and entering, forgery and other property crimes. His projected release date had been February 2015 prior to his escape.
