A second teen who escaped from Kearney’s Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center on Monday has been captured and at last report was being held in the Lancaster County Youth Detention Center in Lincoln.
A spokesman with the Department of Health and Human Services in Lincoln confirmed the 16-year-old had been apprehended without incident, but did not say where he was found.
The other teen was found late Wednesday night at a residence in Sarpy County and has since been returned to Kearney.
At this time, it’s unclear whether the second teen will be transported back to the Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center.
