UPDATE: 2 missing teens found safe on Boise Bench

Boise police found two teen girls who were missing since Saturday night.

The two girls were seen leaving a youth facility near North Cloverdale Road and West Fairview Avenue Saturday around 5:30 p.m. Then they were missing for 24 hours. The girls left with only the “clothes on their back,” said Officer Wayne Anderson.

Both girls have medical conditions, and one needs regular treatment to avoid life-threatening consequences, Anderson said.

After a citizen called in a tip police found the girls near the Boise Bench area. They were both safe, police said.

Police put out a description and photos when seeking the public’s help finding the two.
