Guam – After nine days on the lam, the DYA client who escaped is now back in custody.
For more than a week the Department of Youth Affairs turned over every stone in hopes of finding the 17-year old female client who ran away from custody while on an outing to Matapang Beach. The search finally came to an end Christmas Day.
DYA Spokeswoman Danielle Camacho says a tip led DYA officers to a home in Machanaonao, Dededo.
Now that the minor is back in custody, she faces additional charges of escape and is being held under strict conditions.
DYA commends the officers who helped to search for the minor, noting that the task was far from easy, since neither the minor’s identity nor picture could be released to the public.
