FOUND: KCSO seeks public's help to locate Echo Glen escapee

Thursday, January 27, 2022

UPDATE: The juvenile who escaped from Echo Glen has been taken into custody. The other four were still at large but police expected to locate them soon. Only the 15 year old featured was thought to be a danger to the community.

Now that he is in custody, this story has been edited to remove his name and photo.

Detectives with the King County Sheriff's Office Major Crimes Unit (MCU), seek the public's help in locating a 15-year-old escapee following today's escape from the Echo Glen Children's Center.

The subject was in Echo Glen's care following his 2021 conviction for Murder-1 and Unlawful Possession of a Firearm stemming from a 2020 homicide in southwest King County. 

It is because of the Sheriff's Office concern for the safety and wellbeing of the public that the juvenile was named.

The juvenile's whereabouts remain unknown. He may be in the company of four other juveniles also involved in today's escape. These young men may be driving a 2018 gray Ford Fusion (WA license 27545E) that was taken in this incident.

Any persons with information are asked to call 911 or the King County Sheriff's non-emergency number at 206-296-3311.
