Three juvenile runaways from the Woodward Academy were taken into custody about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday near the intersection of U.S. Highway 169 and Iowa Highway 141.
The males escaped from the Woodward Academy campus about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday and were believed to be traveling in a northwest direction.
The Dallas County Sheriff’s office received a report about 12:15 p.m. of three white males fitting the description of the runaways and walking northward along U.S. Highway 169 about one-tenth of a mile north of the gas station at the Four Corners.
The Dallas County Sheriff’s office responded as well as staff employees of Sequel Youth Services, the for-profit company that operates the Woodward Academy.
