Melissa Riley, left and Jessica Rivera walked away from York Correctional Institute on Saturday night. They were found on Sunday.
The search is now over for two female inmates who escaped from a prison in Niantic.
The facility was immediately placed in lockdown and the escape was considered a walk-away since the offenders were housed in a minimum security area of the facility.
Residents in the area were alerted of the escape by the state's reverse 911 system.
The Corrections Department, along with local and state police, analyzed surveillance video from the prison and gathered information to eventually track down Riley and Rivera in Hartford.
The two inmates were being transported to State Police in Montville after they were found. They are both being held on $500,000 bond and will appear before a judge on Monday after being charged with escape from custody.
