NEWPORT-A runaway 17-year-old female that escaped from custody of the Department of Children's Services last week was apprehended later that same day, the Cocke County Sheriff's Department reported.

The teenager, who had active charges for being a runaway and violating probation, ran out of the DCS office and jumped into a truck with her 19-year-old boyfriend, according to a report by K9 Deputy Sheriff Chris Gregg.

Gregg stated that he went to the area where the teenager's boyfriend lives and saw him leaving the resident in the passenger's seat of the vehicle.

Gregg allegedly stopped the vehicle and asked the boyfriend where his missing girlfriend was. The boyfriend allegedly agreed to show law enforcement where she was, according to Gregg's report.
