Juvenile Escapee Search Moves to Lubbock

New information is released on the two juvenile Floydada escapees. Floydada police believe the two are now in Lubbock. Police confirmed someone gave them a ride into town from Hale Center.

The boys took turns beating two staff members and then stole their car and drove about 20 miles north of Floydada before abandoning the vehicle. The search for two juveniles is entering its twentieth hour, and with the temperature set to dip near freezing tonight, police are fearing for the lives of the young boys.

Police are approaching the search like a hunter would track an animal. They have two game wardens and six volunteers on horseback trying to retrace footprints. Floydada police have also been joined by Lockney police, Floyd, Brisco, Motley and Hale County Sheriff's Departments.

The detention center chief told NewsChannel 11 this is the first time a staff member has ever been attacked and the entire incident came as a major shock.

To protect the juveniles, we cannot air their pictures, but we can tell you they were both wearing white shirts, one had on shorts the other had pants, and police believe one young man is wearing only one shoe.

If you have any information, please call Floydada Police at (806) 983-2834 or the Floyd County Sheriff at (806) 983-4901.
