OPP revealed Wednesday morning they were seeking Joshua Kenneth Kohl, 42, serving an indeterminate sentence for second-degree murder.

He was being held in a minimum security unit when corrections staff discovered he was unaccounted for Tuesday evening.

Kohl was found and apprehended by Kingston police Wednesday.
