Vasily Bech, 37, escaped from Penal Colony No 3 in Tomsk after being deployed to work in the institution's vegetable store. 

He evaded armed guards, and a search parties, and walked 200 km on forest tracks in an attempt to see his daughter Anna in Molchanovo village.

Bech was detained in the village where his daughter lives. 

Anna's mother Nadezhda Uimanova, 30, now lives with another man.  

But reports say he is now likely to face an additional four years after absconding. 

And he will be forced to pay for the costs of the searches to find him if a legal action by the Russian Federal Penitentiary Service is successful.

When it's family (especially when its your child/children) love knows no bounds. My question is...he walked 125 miles approx and they couldn't keep up? Wow!

And they probably had sniffer dogs to boot. As I said, "Love knows no bounds".
