NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — One teen is still on the run after escaping from the Davidson County Juvenile Justice Center, and an attorney for the company managing the facility has offered an additional reward for his capture.

Ben M. Rose of the RoseFirm, PLLC, is one of the attorneys representing Youth Opportunity Investments. He is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the recapture of Brandon Caruthers, bringing the reward total to $13,000.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation officials placed Caruthers on the Top 10 Most Wanted list following his escape with three other teens. He along with Morris Marsh, Decorrius Wright and Calvin Howse, escaped from the center. Officials say they were all out of their cells cleaning when the guard with them left to break up a fight in another part of the building.

“It is important to me to assist the great men and women of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department in obtaining information necessary to bring these fugitives back into custody. I support them and their efforts to keep our community safe," Rose said in a press release.
