NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CNN) – Authorities say 13 juveniles escaped from the Woodland Hills Youth Development Center on Friday night, the same detention center in Nashville where 32 juveniles escaped earlier this month.

By Saturday morning, 12 of the 13 escapees had been recaptured and brought to court to face additional charges, according a Tennessee Department of Children’s Services statement.

At this point, a 16-year-old “with a record that includes theft, assault and runaway” remains at large.

Two of the 32 teenagers who escaped back on Sept. 1 are still on the loose.

According to its website, Woodland Hills is for “delinquent male youth” between 13 and 19-years-old that have committed at least three felonies.
