NASHVILLE, TN (AP) – A spokesman says more than 30 teens escaped from a Nashville youth detention center and 17 are still being sought.

Tennessee Department of Children’s Services spokesman Rob Johnson says 32 teens — ages 14 to 19 — escaped around 11 p.m. Monday by crawling under a weak spot in a fence that surrounded a yard there.

Johnson says two teens were recaptured right away and others were found overnight. Local police and the Tennessee Highway Patrol are taking part in the search for the teens still at large.

Johnson says the teens being kept at the detention center have committed at least three felonies. He said he didn’t know if the escape was planned or spontaneous.
