    There is no indication that a fugitive who was captured in June in Morgan County is back in the Lake of the Ozarks area after escaping from the Caldwell County jail more than a week ago.
    Brian James Adkison, 23, broke out of the Caldwell County Detention Center in Kingston, Mo. shortly before midnight Saturday, Aug. 10. He was reportedly barefoot and wearing white boxer shorts at the time of his escape and remains on the loose.
    Adkison was being held there on kidnapping and sexual assault charges after being captured June 21 following a five-day manhunt in the lake area that involved 19 law enforcement agencies. Lt. Mike Nienhuis, patrol supervisor with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office, took Adkison into custody without incident at a vacant rental house around the 40 mile marker of the Lake of the Ozarks. As a result, Adkison is also facing burglary charges in Morgan County.
    Now though, Nienhuis says, the sheriff's department has had no reason to believe that Adkison is back in the area. The Camden County Sheriff's Office also reports that they have had no sign of him or reason to believe he is at the lake.
    A possible sighting of Adkison was made at Franky & Louie's in Sunrise Beach on Aug. 21, but the report was ultimately ruled unfounded by Sunrise Beach police.
    The Missouri State Highway Patrol is spearheading the renewed search for Adkison and confirmed that there was no indication he was in the lake area.
    Anyone having information regarding the whereabouts of Brian James Adkison is asked to contact the Caldwell County Sheriff's Department at 816-586-2681 or the Missouri State Highway Patrol at 816-387-2345.
