MOUNT PLEASANT, Mich. A 14-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl who disappeared from their central Michigan homes with an SUV 11 days ago have been found safe in Chicago.

The teens took off from their Mount Pleasant-area homes the night of Aug. 26, along with a Ford Explorer that belongs to the boy's mother.

Isabella County Sheriff Leo Mioduszewski (MED'-uh-SHEH'-skee) says Chicago police found the teens Sunday morning near Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs.

The sheriff tells the Morning Sun that a caller spotted the vehicle in a parking lot and contacted police. MLive.com says police confirm the vehicle was spotted Aug. 29 at the Mackinac Bridge linking Michigan's Upper and Lower peninsulas.

The teens are returning to Michigan, and they have a hearing in Isabella County Probate Court on Monday.
