A man who escaped home confinement turned himself in Thursday afternoon.

Wood County sheriff's deputies have been searching for Andrew Pratt since the end of June. That's when he took off on foot from his Jesterville Road home.

Deputies say days later his ankle bracelet was found in Pettyville.

Pratt was transferred from the Wood County Holding Center to the North Central Regional Jail.

He is charged with escape from house arrest and destruction of property.
