WILLIAMSPORT, Md. (AP) — Washington County authorities are looking for two boys who allegedly stole a van to escape from a residential Christian school for troubled youth near Williamsport.

The sheriff’s office says the boys, ages 16 and 14, ran away Monday afternoon from the Cedar Ridge Children’s Home.

Deputies say the boys took a white 2008 Chevrolet Express passenger van with Maryland tags and a decal in the rear window that reads, “Cedar Ridge Children’s Home.”

They say both boys are from Baltimore.

Cedar Ridge is a residential school for abused, abandoned, neglected and emotionally disturbed boys.
