Teen on the Run Asks Police to Use a Better 'Wanted' Photo of Her
An Australian teenage girl on the run after escaping a correctional center didn't like the photo cops released publicly to find her — so she sent over a better one.
Amy Sharp, 18, reportedly escaped the Surry Hills Corrective Services Cell Complex in Sydney and was last seen more than a week ago.
On Thursday, however, the teen emerged — at least on social media — with a simple request for police.
"Can you use this photo, please and thank you. Yours truly, Amy Sharp xx," she wrote in the comments of a local news report that used the unflattering police photos.
The comment on the 7 News Sydney Facebook page subsequently received more than 60,000 likes.
The comment also raised community awareness of Sharp, which likely didn't help her stay out of authorities' grasp for long.
7 News Sydney reported that Sharp was taken back into custody after midnight on Friday after a full week on the lam.
