The Franklin County Sheriff's Office has found two Rocky Mount teenagers who had been missing since Friday morning.
Bailey Noel Turner, 15, and Benjamin Hadden Weir, 17, were located in Cape Hatteras, N.C., earlier today.
The two teens, who are in a relationship, ran away together. They were picked up by the Dare County Sheriff's Office, according to Lt. Todd Maxey.
The local sheriff's office began the investigation Friday morning when Bailey's father reported her missing after he went into her room, said Sgt. Phillip Young.
Deputies found no evidence of foul play or a struggle, Young said. Bailey's clothes and other personal belongings were missing from her room.
The teens are being reunited with their families, Maxey added.
