MANSFIELD, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Department of Human Services says two youths who escaped the Mansfield Juvenile Treatment Center in western Arkansas have been recaptured.

DHS says in a news release that the two were found by local law enforcement just after 4:30 a.m. Thursday. No other details were released.

The two escaped about 7 p.m. Wednesday when they ran from the facility into a heavily wooded area shortly after eating.

One of the escapees is a 15-year-old girl being held for a felony crime against a person. DHS did not release details about the other escapee.
