Missing teens found unharmed in New London
NEW LONDON - Two teens missing since early Friday have been found unharmed, police said Saturday morning.
Officer Russell Lamson said Devon Elizabeth Pike, 17, of New London, and Timothy O';Neill, 15, of Wilmot, were found about 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the town of New London.
"They';re OK. They';re safe," Lamson said. "They';re both alive and well. It';s a good ending to this."
The pair were last seen about 6 a.m. Friday at Pike';s residence on Birch Acres Road, leaving on foot and were possibly picked up in a car, police said Friday night. Police treated the disappearance as a runaway and said foul play was not suspected.
Lamson said he didn';t know if Pike and O';Neill, who police said are a couple, were found inside a building or outside. He said they were found in New London and were taken to New London Hospital for precautionary reasons.
A large police search that included the use of a helicopter, continued into Saturday morning before the teens were found.
