POLICE IN NORTHERN Ireland have started a manhunt for a teenage boy who has escaped custody.

The 15 year old got out of a parked police car in the Glenshane Road area at about 4.25pm today.

The PSNI said he is wearing a grey tracksuit and black shoes.

Although they say he poses no risk to the public, they are continuing to conduct searches in the Dungiven area.

Well, you can’t just do that, can you?
