Here is a bit more information from the Contra Costa Times
Deputy sheriffs, along with a police K-9 unit and air-support from the California Highway Patrol, searched the area around Byron Highway near Byer and Bixler Roads for a subject who has been described as a Hispanic male, 17 years old, 6 feet tall and 165 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. He was last seen wearing an orange jumpsuit and a blue sweat shirt.
The ward allegedly walked away from the detention facility, according to Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jimmy Lee. After over an hour of searching, the 17-year-old was not found.
The warning was sent out at 9:32 p.m. The teen’s name has not been released by police.
If you recall, in September of 2011, four boys also escaped.
