A 16-year-old male committed to the custody of the Division of Juvenile Justice and placed at Stonewall Jackson Youth Development Center in Concord has escaped while in transport from a juvenile court visit in Goldsboro.
The juvenile—identified as “Ishmael,” last initial “B”—was last seen on U.S. 70 West outside of Goldsboro between Leslie Road and Edgar Street at 10:30 a.m. The juvenile’s home county is Wayne County.
Juvenile Justice has notified local law enforcement and is cooperating fully with the investigation. Due to the unpredictability of juvenile behavior during an escape, the division has a high degree of concern for the safety of both the juvenile and the public. This juvenile has a history of assaultive behavior.
