A minimum-security inmate that escaped from a Milwaukee facility has been found in Illinois, police say.

Steger Police located 27-year-old Trezelle Bishop at an acquaintance's home in the village of Steger after being advised by a Will County dispatch center about the ongoing contact.

While searching the premises of the acquaintance's home, Bishop was found hiding in a bedroom in a baby's crib.

The inmate was taken back into custody and is awaiting extradition back to Wisconsin.

Bishop had been missing from Felmers O. Chaney Correctional Center since early Friday.
