The Interstate Compact on Juveniles provides the means by which a juvenile escapee or absconder can be returned to his state of origin with only a minimum of difficulty. Article V of the compact, which covers this situation, provides that the person or authority from whose probation or parole supervision a delinquent youth has absconded or from whose institutional custody he has escaped can make a written request for his return to the appropriate court or executive authority of the state where the youth is allegedly located.
