NEWTON, Kan. — The agency responsible for those five Newton runaways is offering more information Friday about how they escaped from its facility. This as police continue to search for the teen girls considered endangered.
Late Wednesday night, law enforcement say Ke’Aira Baker, Jasmine Bell, Adriana Doolin, Stephanie Grounds and Sidney Rhoten-Young ran away from Youthville’s Secure Care facility in Newton.
“We’re very concerned about the girls. Certainly we never want that kind of thing to happen,” said Shelley Duncan, the president and CEO of Ember Hope, a private child welfare organization that oversees Youthville.
