Two teens from Exeter, New Hampshire, who had been missing since Feb. 11 have been found in Indiana after they were involved in a car crash Friday afternoon.
Jonathan Wood, 15, and Jenna Smith, 14, were located around 1:30 p.m. following a 2-car crash in Greencastle, Indiana, Exeter police said. The car they were in struck another vehicle from behind on Route 231.
They were taken into custody by the Putnam County Sheriff's Office until they can be picked up by their parents.
The search for the two teens began after they were reported missing on Feb. 11. They were believed to be traveling together in a gray 2016 Honda CRV owned by a family member. That car was the one involved in Friday's crash.
