California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation special agents took custody of Dickens and will be transporting him back to the prison.

Dickens was reported missing from his bunk in a dorm at 6:30 a.m. Dickens entered the state prison system March 18, 2010 from Sacramento County and was serving a four-year term.

He was scheduled to be released Dec. 22, 2011.

The prison houses maximum-security inmates serving long sentences and those who have been hard to control. The prison also has minimum-supervision inmates, such as Dickens, outside the institution's perimeter to help with maintenance and other tasks.
