(KMOV) -- The Missouri Water Patrol is searching for a 16-year-old who jumped from a bridge in Jefferson City while wearing shackles.
State officials say the boy was being driven to a juvenile center when he attacked two staff members. Then he got into the front seat and escaped, before jumping into the fast moving river.
His mother said he was trying to avoid going back to the detention center.
