Boys State Training School

Two students escaped from the State Training School for Boys in Eldora on Tuesday morning.

Details are scarce, but Eldora Police Chief Mike Ludwigs has confirmed that at least two students escaped either overnight or Friday morning from the Iowa State Training School.

Ludwigs, who was not on duty Friday morning, said his department was informed of the escapes at 8:56 a.m. Ludwigs, who happened to stop by his office when he returned a phone call to the Times Citizen, said the report on hand stated that at least one of the boys has been apprehended and he believed the other boy may have been apprehended as well, but he couldn't be sure.
