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.
