LA GRANDE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon Youth Authority officials are reviewing their security policies after two teenagers escaped from Camp Riverbend, a transitional living facility in La Grande.

Authorities say 18-year-old Brittain McAuliffe and 18-year-old Micah West left through a gate June 20 after taking a slide card from the facility. It’s unclear how they got the card, and the teens have not been caught after more than a week on the run.

Youth authority spokesman Benjamin Chambers tells The Observer newspaper (https://is.gd/DZB84S ) that one change has already been put in place. No one - not even staff - can get through the gate with a slide card.

The escape was the first at Camp Riverbend since 2008.
