The two boys, identified as Chris H and Mikal M, escaped the Stonewall Jackson Youth Development Center in Concord around 2:45 p.m. on Sunday afternoon.
Due to the unpredictability of juvenile behavior during an escape, the Department has a high degree of concern for the safety of the juveniles and the public.
