Authorities are still searching for a teen who failed to return to a state facility in Kinston.
The Department of Juvenile Justice is only identifying the juvenile as "Demetrice H." and that he is from Cumberland County.
The state agency says due to the unpredictability of the teen during an escape, they have a high degree of concern for the safety of both the juvenile and the public.
Demetric H. was last seen at the Kinston Plaza Shopping Center Wednesday afternoon and failed to return to the Lenoir Youth Development Center after a four hour off-campus visit.
Juvenile Justice says local authorities are helping in the search for the teen.
