BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Louisiana's Office of Juvenile Justice says three teenagers from southwest Louisiana have been caught in the Zachary area, less than a day after they escaped from the Jetson Center for Youth in Baker. The head of the office, Mary Livers (LYE' vers), said the three were captured without incident and were returned to Jetson. Two of the juveniles, both 16, will remain there. The third, who Livers said is 19, will be transferred to East Baton Rouge Parish prison and will face charges as an adult in the escape. Authorities discovered that the three were missing Wednesday morning. Livers said an early report by authorities that the three put dummies in their beds were incorrect. She said an investigation is under way to find out how they escaped.
