Perry County Deputies Search For Runaway Teens

PERRY COUNTY, TN - Two teens have reportedly runaway from the Deer Valley youth campus, and may have burglarized a couple of properties.

UPDATE: The teens were captured, without incident, Monday afternoon.

Chief Deputy Bart Rosson of the Perry County Sheriff's Office says the two teen boys, both 13, left the campus overnight Friday. They are still believed to be in the area, Rosson says. Monday morning, deputies organized to begin a large search of the area.

Photos of the teens are not yet available. The two are not believed to be armed.

Just last month, a pair of armed runaways from a neighboring youth home led deputies on a week-long search. The search ended when deputies tracked them to a barricaded and trapped cabin with a cache of weapons inside.
