One teenager remains on the run after escaping with two others, who have since been caught, from a juvenile jail in Alice Springs.

Three boys, two aged 16 and another aged 17, fled the detention centre late on Sunday night.

Police say they have now found one of the 16-year-olds and the 17-year-old, with both boys returned to custody.

The other 16-year-old is still on the run and is not considered dangerous.
