ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State Police say a teen who walked away from a juvenile treatment center has been found.

Police found 15-year-old Malachi Sanchez Wednesday at a home in Albuquerque after he left the Sequoyah Adolescent Treatment Center Saturday.

Investigators believe Sanchez knows someone at the home.

State police say Sanchez has a violent criminal history.

The Sequoyah Adolescent Treatment Center assists young males, between ages 13 and 17, who have a history of violence, a mental health disorder and are amenable to treatment.
