CUSTER, S.D. (AP) - One of two teenagers who authorities say ran away from a youth rehabilitation facility in western South Dakota earlier this month has been arrested.

The state Department of Corrections on Monday said the 16-year-old boy was arrested during a traffic stop Friday in Rapid City.

The teenagers ran away shortly before 10:30 p.m. July 2 from the State Treatment and Rehabilitation Academy near Custer.

A third teenager who took off from the facility that night was apprehended near the academy hours after the escape.

The teenager who remains at large is described as a 17-year-old Native American male. He is 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighs 150 pounds and has black hair and brown eyes.
