LIBERTY — Three juveniles escaped from the Belmont Pines Hospital Wednesday at about 7 p.m., according to a police report.

One girl, 17, was captured and taken back to the facility, the report said.

The boys , 14 and 16, were last seen on Tanglewood Drive, but police are still searching for them, the report said.
