An inmate living at the Phillips Transitional Center in Buford who failed to return from his job in Gainesville in mid-October has been recaptured by authorities, according to the Georgia Department of Corrections.

In a statement on social media, the Department of Corrections said 47-year-old Brian Scott Murphy was recaptured on Tuesday, Oct. 27 in Walker County by the GDC Fugitive Unit and the Southeast Regional Task Force. Murphy originally went missing on Oct. 14.

Murphy is serving a 20-year sentence for a burglary conviction from Catoosa County. The Department of Corrections website says the mission of the Phillips Transitional Center is to “assist residents in making a successful transition back into the community by providing social and employment skills.”
