Philadelphia Police Deputy Commissioner of Investigations Frank Vanore said Shane Pryor, 17, was in the parking lot of the emergency room at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia around noon when he escaped. Two prison staff members were in the car with Pryor, according to Vanore, but he was not handcuffed when he exited the car.

Pryor was at the hospital to be seen for an alleged hand injury of unknown origin. He is not believed to be in a hospital.
