BATON ROUGE - The Office of Juvenile Justice announced a late-notice press conference this evening to release more details about two juveniles who escaped from the Jetson Center for Youth and were later caught.

Clarence McWilliams and Demonte Washington walked out of the facility last Tuesday. They were found Saturday night inside a home on America Street in Baton Rouge.

Director Daron Brown was placed on leave following the escape. On Friday, the Office of Juvenile Justice said he chased a car believed to be carrying the escapees. However, it turns out that tip was misleading: State Police told News 2 they don't believe a pursuit ever took place.

The briefing is scheduled for 7 p.m. at State Police Headquarters. News 2 will have details on what's announced tonight at 10 p.m.
