MT. PLEASANT, MI (WNEM) -

Two teenagers reported missing from Mt. Pleasant last month have been found safe in Chicago.

Few details have been released at this time. But we have been told that family are on their way to pick up 14-year-old Braxton Wood and his 13-year-old girlfriend Jayden Thomas.

They had been missing since Aug. 26. The couple took off in a 2005 black Ford Explorer with very little cash.

The family was frustrated that local authorities didn't issue an Amber Alert. The Isabella County Sheriff said it's because there was no sign of the two being in imminent danger. Because of this, some may be left wondering why time and resources are being spent in search for the two, who by all accounts wanted to remain on their own.

TV5 asked the sheriff this tough question. He said it's because they're both so young and they were suspected to be driving around with no license or experience.
