Officials say the last of four D.C. youths who escaped from a private treatment facility in South Carolina has been taken into custody.

The D.C. Department of Youth Rehabilitation Services says the youth was captured Wednesday by the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force.

The youth was one of four who escaped from the Palmetto Summerville Behavioral Health Center in Summerville, S.C., on April 20. The other three youths were apprehended a day later.

Officials say the center is a placement facility for adolescent males with sexually aggressive behaviors, substance abuse problems and psychiatric, behavioral or conduct issues.

The task force is made up of several state and local law enforcement agencies, including the D.C. police department and the U.S. Marshals Service.
