Posted: 09/05/13 09:56

Authorities continue to look for a boy that escaped from a youth rehabilitation center in Kearney. The state Department of Health and Human Services says several youths from Kearney's Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center escaped Monday night. Four of the five youths who escaped have been captured. Two youths were first reported missing. Additional escapees were reported after staff conducted a head count and checked surveillance video.
Kearney police say there were contacted about a half hour after the first youths were reported missing. The center provides different types of treatment to patients, including mental health and social services. The facility is not a juvenile detention center and is not locked. However, youths could face an adult felony charge for escaping.
