Authorities arrested Graham Stowe Saturday night in Fond du Lac, officials said.

Stowe escaped from Mendota Mental Health in Madison July 2, and authorities have been looking for him in the Green Bay area since then.

Officials said Stowe climbed a fence and ran into the woods.

Stowe was admitted to Mendota because he planned on killing himself in front of his girlfriend and her family, who he had kidnapped and tied up, officials said.
