- JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Juneau police say two 18-year-old men who escaped from a youth facility are back in custody. Alexander Netling and Amante Frazier Rees are now at the Lemon Creek Correctional Center after being taken into custody on charges of escape and criminal mischief early Saturday. KINY says the men were being held without bail. Police were notified of the escape from the Johnson Youth Center Friday night by a worker who followed the men before losing sight of them. Sgt. Chris Gifford says police searched the area, but did not find the men. At midnight, a resident around Blackerby Street called to report voices outside her home. Police say officers found the tracks of two people and located the men inside a storage shed behind a Glacier Highway home.
