A SEARCH was launched yesterday after a 15-year-old prisoner broke out of Cape Collinson Correctional Institution. ''We received a report . . . that at 10.30 am the Correctional Services Department [CSD] found an iron fence had been cut open,'' a police spokeswoman said. ''The CSD believes the prisoner cut through the fence, climbed up the hill and escaped towards Shek O.''
