    NSW Police released photos of the teen in the hope the public would spot her and call Triple Zero.

    Sharp, whose Facebook cover photo reads "I'm just a lil princess with anger issues", commented on a Facebook status by 7 News Sydney asking the network to use more flattering photos of her.

    "Yours truly," the escapee signed off.


    Soon after, Sharp was arrested at Glebe's Wentworth Park and charged with escaping lawful custody. She appeared before Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.
