Teen boy still on loose in San Francisco after escaping custody

The hunt for a San Francisco juvenile hall escapee wearing “glittery” clothing continued Thursday with little success, according to police.

About 8:40 p.m. Wednesday, the flashy-clothed and unnamed fugitive was being transported to the San Francisco Youth Guidance Center after his extradition from San Bernardino, police spokesman Officer Gordon Shyy said. As the vehicle he was in pulled into the facility, the boy reportedly bolted.

Police have not said whether he was handcuffed. The California Extradition Service driver was the boy’s only escort, Shyy said.

The driver gave chase and called police. However, a subsequent manhunt that included canine units failed to turn up the teen. Authorities continued searching Thursday to no avail.

“At this point, he’s outstanding,” Shyy said Thursday afternoon.

The description of the boy was vague, saying only that he is black and was wearing a “glittery black tank top” with acid-washed dark jeans.

Police said the teen had been wanted here on two misdemeanor warrants, but haven’t described the charges.
However, “he is not considered dangerous,” Shyy said.
