(WSLS 10) - Convicted sex offender Benjamin Shook will be in Federal Court Thursday in Greenville, Tennessee.

Earlier this month, police captured Shook with 14-year-old Hayleigh Wilson in Smyth County.

The two were the subject of a massive manhunt spanning at least three states.

They were found after two weeks on the run. Shook is charged with failing to register as a sex offender.
