Authorities are looking for a teen who escaped from the Pueblo Youth Center after a court appearance Tuesday.

The teen was wearing a medical boot during the court appearance. Once he was back at the PYC and officers were occupied, he reportedly dropped his crutches, took off the boot and ran.

Detectives and patrol units searched for the teen, but only found the PYC-issued clothing he had been wearing.

The sheriff's office says the 16-year-old is not a threat to the community, but could be a danger to himself. They are asking anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 719-542-STOP (7867).
