VINTON, Iowa - The two Benton County girls reported missing Saturday have been found safe about 200 miles away from home in central Illinois, authorities said Tuesday.
Skie J. Floyd, 15, and Jazlyn J. Visek, 15, had not been seen since noon Saturday when they were spotted in Shellsburg, and had not had contact with family members since 3 p.m. Saturday. The girls were believed to be with two runaways from the Atlantic area – Corey L. Sunderman, 16, and Austin M. Boggs, 13.
Forsyth said all four teens were found in Eureka, Ill. when law enforcement responded to a report of trespassing. All four were taken to the Woodford County, Ill. correctional facility as they await transportation back to Iowa.
Forsyth had earlier said the teenagers were not believed to be in any danger, but authorities were still concerned about their whereabouts.
