KEARNEY, Neb. (KSNB) - Authorities have located nearly all the youth who escaped from the Kearney Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center Tuesday.

The Buffalo County Emergency Alert System notified subscribers just before 12:30 a.m. Wednesday that five of the escaped youth had been caught and are in custody at this time.

According to BuffaloWatch, one black male 5'10", 170 pounds, black hair, brown eyes wearing green sweatshirt and blue jeans remains at large. Do not approach, call 911 if seen.

Originally an alert went out at 7:49 p.m. Tuesday for seven male escapees from the YRTC, but due to some confusion initially, that number was later lowered to six escapees. Again, five have been captured and one remains at large.
