GIDDINGS, Texas (AP) — Two teen inmates have been caught a day after escaping from a juvenile prison in Giddings, Texas, about 100 miles northwest of Houston.

The Texas Juvenile Justice Department said in a release that 16-year-olds Brice Ryan Karalis and Bryan Ernando Villanueva were arrested Sunday evening in Montgomery County. The two disappeared from the Giddings State School around 9 p.m. Saturday.

The teens’ mode of escape was not released, and additional details about their apprehension were not immediately available.
