Two runaway teens from Madison County have been found safe on Monday.

Madison County Sheriff Robert Spain asked for the public's help in locating two teenagers who ran away from a children's home in Madison County Sunday night.

Jeremy Peeples,15, and Hunter Bruce, 13, were last seen leaving the back door of 1800 Madison 257 around 9 p.m. Sunday, running off into the woods.

They ran away from Faith Foundation Children's Home.

Peeples was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and Bruce was last seen in a gray hoodie and pants, possibly headed to Kennett, Missouri or the state of Mississippi.

Spain said the Farmington Correctional Center dog team tracked them to a nearby church where he believes someone picked them up.

Spain believed the teens may be headed to the Pemiscot County area. They were not considered to be in danger.
