Two of the three teenagers who were on the run after escaping from the New Opportunity Corps (NOC) on March 26 last, have been recaptured by the police thus leaving one still on the run.
The other three who had escaped were said to have returned to the NOC voluntarily. This is according to Commander “G” Division (Essequibo Coast, Essequibo Islands), Senior Superintendent Khali Pareshram, who confirmed that the hunt is stull on for one juvenile.
He had previously stated that although the six teenagers had escaped between March 25 and 26 last, a report was only made to the police three days later.
