Sydney: An Australian teenager, who was on the run, contacted police authorities on Facebook and pasted a flattering photograph of her in the comments section, requesting them to use this picture instead of the mugshots.

Identified as Amy Sharp, the 18-year-old had escaped from the Surry Hills Corrective Services Cell Complex in Sydney.

 

According to a report in the Daily Mail, police had released two mugshots of Sharp, informing people to watch out for her.

Soon after, Sharp responded to the police authorities by giving them a picture of herself with a note that read, "Can you use this photo, please and thank you... Yours Truly, Amy Sharp."

Sharp's post went viral and received a lot of likes and comments from Facebook users.

While some flooded her post's comments section with emoticons, an FB user wrote, "Why? You look like a junkie either way?"

Another one commented, "This is the best thing I have seen on Facebook."

Some of the users suggested police that they should use her Facebook post to track her down -- and it proved right! Sharp was arrested by police on Saturday at Wentworth Park and has been taken into custody for further questioning.
