An Arkansas prison escapee who had been on the run for more than three decades has been recaptured.

The state Department of Corrections said 60-year-old Steven Dishman was arrested at a home in Springdale in north-west Arkansas on Sunday by local law enforcement and state troopers.

Details of what led authorities to Dishman and his arrest were not immediately released.

The corrections department said Dishman was serving a seven-year sentence for theft of property and burglary convictions in Washington County when he escaped on May 28 1985.
