FLOWOOD, MS (WLOX) - Gulfport Police arrested two escaped inmates Wednesday morning, and they're giving credit to a sharp eyed WLOX viewer.

Bridget Lamey and Terri Sanderford, both 40, were discovered missing from the Flowood Community Work Center around 3:15am Wednesday morning.

Gulfport Police said a citizen called them after seeing two women hanging around the 8000 block of Highway 49 wearing pajamas and no shoes. The caller said the two women looked like the escaped inmates she had just seen on WLOX's Good Morning Mississippi broadcast.

Officers caught up with the women and found they were indeed the wanted prisoners.

Bridget Lamey is serving a 10-year sentence convictions of Credit Card Fraud and Uttering Forgery from Harrison County. Terri Sanderford is serving a 3-year sentence for a conviction of Uttering Forgery from Copiah County.

Both women now face an additional five year sentence if convicted of escape. They're being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center before being transferred to the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility in Pearl.
