Police are searching for five teenage boys who escaped custody at a Child Support Centre in north Trinidad run by the Children's Authority between Friday night and Saturday morning.

Investigators said an official at the centre contacted them on Saturday at around 11.45 am to say he had noticed the five boys were missing after making checks.

St Joseph police went to the area and saw CCTV footage in which the boys were seen passing through burglarproof bars on a room on the western side of the building.

The boys, 15 and 16, are from Diego Martin, St James, Laventille, Curepe and Siparia.
