The two missing Rolla teenagers have been found by authorities. The O’Fallon Police Department said they received a tip that indicated the juveniles were in St. Louis. Tania Bowman and Savannah Mitchell were released to their parents.
Authorities in central Missouri’s Phelps County were searching for the teens, who had been missing since Thursday. They were thought to be headed for St. Louis to meet someone, possibly someone involved in criminal activity.
Phelps County Sheriff Richard L. Lisenbe thanks the other law enforcement departments and the public for assistance with this case. Lisenbe says due to cooperating agencies, the case had a swift and safe ending.
