Police concerned about two teens missing from Utah area
SPANISH FORK, Utah — Spanish Fork police are concerned about the safety of two teens that have been missing since late Friday night. A third teen that was thought to be with the two teens has been found
A 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl are believed to be together.
The Utah County Sheriff’s office says the missing kids from Spanish Fork are runaways that may be in the company of someone named Victor. The teens may be either in Payson or Salt Lake City, Utah, Idaho, or en route to Mexico.
Most of the concern arises because of the age of the children, said Sgt. Spencer Cannon with the Utah County Sheriff’s office
“Thirteen- or fourteen-year-old kids are going to look vulnerable,” Cannon said. “Somebody might take advantage of that, and that can be very very dangerous for (the kids.)
“There’s a lot of reasons we want to get them back home here, find out where they are, and make sure that they’re safe.”
