DHS Looking For Arkansas Juvenile Who Left Facility

Arkansas authorities say they are looking for a 17-year-old boy who left a juvenile treatment facility in Dermott.

The Department of Human Services on Wednesday identified the youth as Brandon Metcalf. The agency says he is white; 5 feet, 6 inches tall; and weighs 130 pounds. He was last seen at the facility at about 9:20 p.m. Monday.

DHS says Metcalf was convicted of breaking or entering, aggravated assault, and being a minor in possession of a handgun. He left the Dermott Juvenile Treatment Center, which is run under contract by South Arkansas Youth Services.

The agency asks that anyone who sees Metcalf call police.
