UNIVERSITY CITY, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Wearing only a hospital gown and basketball shorts, a 15 year-old male escaped an ambulance that was transporting him to the hospital Thursday night. 

Laquisha Taylor, the mother of the teenager, said while her son was being transported from one hospital to another hospital, due to a fight. On the way to the new hospital, her son, Dementirius Herrod, jumped out of the ambulance and ran into Forest Park, which was nearby. 

Taylor accompanied the St. Louis Metro Police Department and K-9 units as they tried to track down the teen, but the units lost his scent. 

But Taylor said Herrod returned home overnight.
