Ranks from the Guyana Police Force (GPF) are hunting for 20 inmates who escaped from the New Opportunity Corps in Essequibo on Saturday night.
Four of these inmates who escaped from the juvenile holding facility are back at the centre.
The Guyana Standard has been informed that 17 males and seven females broke out of the correctional institute.
According to information received, the females opened a southern door in their dormitory located on the second floor and tied sheets together then used the knotted sheets to climb down. They then jumped over the western fence of the compound.
The males on the other hand, jumped out of a window and then made their way over a fence.
Only a few months ago, 13 inmates escaped from the same facility. They were between the ages of 13 and 17.
