Delinquent escapes Eldora Training School for more than 2 months

Posted: Updated:

More than two months after a young person ran away from the Eldora Training School, the Department of Human Services says the student was apprehended.

DHS says the young person ran away with seven other students on April 10 and was found in Scott County sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

The other students were found and taken back to the Eldora campus within a few days.

The young delinquent found in Scott County is now at a detention facility awaiting a court hearing. Additional charges are pending.

Amy McCoy with DHS didn't specify why it took more than two months to apprehend the final student.
