CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — Family members say three teenagers who went missing from L.C. Bird High School Thursday have been located in Florida.
The three Chesterfield families had hoped a $1,000 reward would help being the teenagers home after they were last seen leaving their school earlier in the week.
Olivia Moore and Charisse Nixon, both 16, were last seen leaving L.C. Bird High School with Jacob Dennis, 18, around 10 a.m. Thursday.
Family members said Olivia and Jacob are a couple, but were uncertain why all three would run away.
The boy’s parents said their son stole their 2003 silver Toyota Camry, and had not been heard from since Thursday. As a result, his family said a warrant has been issued for his arrest for stealing the car.
“Please come home,” Anna Marie Evans, Jacob Dennis’ mother, begged. “It doesn`t matter if you`re in trouble, please come home.”
The families said since the children didn’t pack any belongings they are worried for their safety.
“We figured she’d be home by night,” Curtis Moore, Olivia Moore’s father, said. “She didn’t show up and that`s when we started worrying .”
Saturday afternoon, Olivia’s father said police found the three teens panhandling in Daytona, Florida.
Chesterfield Police previously said they believed Olivia ran away and did not suspect foul play in her disappearance.
