Officials are still trying to determine how three prisoners were mistakenly released from the South West Detention Centre in Windsor.

The Ministry of the Solicitor General confirmed the incident happened last month.

Spokesperson Andrew Morrison tells CTV Windsor that two people were returned to custody, but a third prisoner is still at large.

He says an internal investigation into the incident is underway.
