Great News!!!

Those kids I told you about have been FOUND! They got pulled over for speeding in Illinois, and are both back home safe!

Thanks to all of you who posted, re-tweeted, etc. Here's the news article that a friend sent me on Facebook:

Two runaway Plymouth teenagers have been found in Illinois.

Illinois State Police stopped Tyler Hauptli and his girlfriend, Sasha Jarvis, for speeding Tuesday night about 60 miles north of St. Louis. The 15-year-olds had been missing since Monday morning, when they stole cash from Hauptli's parents and took off in a family car.

Hauptli's mother, Tonya, told Fox 28 the teens are being held at the Porter County (IN) detention center until a hearing on Monday. No word on whether any charges have been filed.

Tonya Hauptli says she thinks the kids ran away because they were upset about how their parents were handling their relationship.

I don't have a source, but I'm assuming it was one of the NWI papers. I'll see if I can find it.

Updated - source here.


In other news, I can get a crapload of stuff done when I stay off the 'net all day.

Hope all your news is good.

Hooray!! That is just wonderful. I was so happy to see your tweet.

(P.S. What is this "staying off the net" thing you speak of? I should give it a try.)
