FRANKLIN, Pa. (AP) - Police are still searching for three teens and four young men from Philadelphia who fled from a residential facility in western Pennsylvania for troubled youth.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports (https://bit.ly/2pFvHnx ) the seven disappeared from VisionQuest’s Lee Prep campus near Franklin last week.

Police say four are suspected of stealing a car after they left the facility on April 20. Three others had walked away days earlier.

A spokeswoman for VisionQuest says the facility is not locked and people sometimes run away, but seven running off in a week is unusual.

It was not immediately clear why the teens and young men had been placed at the facility. A spokeswoman for Philadelphia’s Human Services Department declined to say if they were under the agency’s care.
