Lafayette police say a 14-year-old teenager escaped from the custody of the Challenge and Development Center. According to DSS, the center provides 24-hour residential care to children under the age of 18. Lafayette Police tell us the van stopped at the Taco Bell parking lot near the corner of Donlon Avenue and the Evangeline Thruway. The teen jumped out and ran into the wooded area along Moss Street. He is a black male, bald head, wearing camouflage.
