Teen runaways appear in court

Posted: Updated:

Two Mid-Michigan teens that were spotted in the Chicago area and have since been returned safely appeared in front of a judge Monday.

Braxton Wood and Jayden Thomas appeared in a Mount Pleasant courtroom for a probate hearing.

They're charged with running away from home.

The 13- and 14-year-olds took off two weeks ago, which led to a desperate search by their families.

They were finally spotted in Chicago on Sunday morning and taken in by police.

After pleading with the public to help find their children, family members are now asking for privacy.

Wood and Thomas are both wearing GPS tethers and they have been ordered to stay away from each other. They also must take random drug tests.

But both plead not guilty Monday.
