BATON ROUGE - Law enforcement continued searching for two teens who were discovered missing from the Jetson Correctional Facility.

The teens, 15-year-old Demonte Washington and 18-year-old Clarence McWilliams, were unaccounted for during a head count at 8:15 p.m. last night. Their charges range from simple burglary to carjacking, according to authorities.

Authorities called them "unpredictable", and advised people near Jetson to lock their doors and not allow strangers inside or let them borrow their phones.

Numerous law enforcement agencies from Baton Rouge, Baker, and Zachary searched all night for the teens.

News 2's Chris Nakamoto will have more on the search starting tonight at 5 p.m.
