Derbyshire Police were searching for a man who has absconded from HMP Sudbury.
Keiran Staff was jailed for five years in September 2012 for possession of a firearm and ammunition without a certificate.
The 30-year old was re-arrested on Wednesday after handing himself in at Nottingham Police station.
He was due back at Sudbury prison on Saturday but failed to return.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mr Staff is urged to contact Police and has been advised not to approach him.
