The Correctional Services Department is investigating how a 19-year-old woman inmate escaped from a minimum-security rehabilitation centre at Tai Lam yesterday. A department spokesman said the inmate, surnamed Cheung, went missing at about 12.30pm after going to the toilet during induction training at the Wai Lan Rehabilitation Centre. She was admitted to Chi Lan Rehabilitation Centre on a charge of theft in late March and was transferred to Wai Lan in late July.
