Thirty-two teenagers bolted from a youth detention facility in Nashville during a shift change, and authorities on Tuesday were still struggling to capture all but six of them.

The teens, between the ages of 14 and 17, escaped from Woodland Hills Youth Detention Center in Tennessee, CBS News reported.

They were able to scramble under a fence to freedom.

The six who were captured were found near the facility, police said.

Authorities launched an intensive search for the remaining 26, but reported no increased criminal activity in the region since discovering the escape, CBS News reported.

The YDC houses a total of 78 teens.
