Teen missing from La Honda detention camp found

A 16-year-old boy who walked away from a juvenile detention camp in La Honda on Monday night was found near Woodside this morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office.

The boy had last been seen about 9:20 p.m. Monday at the Camp Glenwood facility, the sheriff's office reported.

The boy was located about one eighth of a mile west of Skyline Boulevard on state Highway 84, or La Honda Road, in unincorporated San Mateo County near Woodside, according to the sheriff's office. The teen is in the custody of the sheriff's office.

The detention center has no perimeter fence, which has contributed to recent problems of juveniles escaping the facility.

Last week, officials arrested 16-year-old Adrian Sedano for murder in Redwood City, just one month after he walked away from the Camp Glenwood facility.  In February, Josue Raul Orozco, a 17-year-old accused of murder, walked away from the Camp Glenwood facility, and is still missing.
