VINTON, Iowa (AP) — Four missing teens – two from western Iowa and two from eastern Iowa, have been found safe in Illinois.  Atlantic Police Chief Steve Green said Tuesday afternoon, that  16-year-old Corey Sunderman and 13-year-old Austin Boggs, both of Atlantic, and Skie Floyd and Jazlyn Visek, both 15 from Shellsburg, were located in Eureka, IL., where they were taken into custody. They had been missing since Saturday afternoon.

Benton County Sheriff Randy Forsyth had said Monday that the teens were not believed to be in any danger and that the girls had planned a trip with the boys. Corey Sunderman’s mother, Crystal Sunderman, told KJAN News Monday, that she thought the teens may have been on their way to Florida for a skateboarding event.
