Runaway students found safe in Montana

The two Ferris High School students who left a note indicating their desire to run away together earlier this month were found safe Sunday in Montana, Spokane police said Monday.

Carolyn Toner, 17, and Adin Haines, 15, have both been reunited with their families, according to a news release from Spokane Police spokeswoman Monique Cotton. The two were reported missing Sept. 4 after leaving a note and taking camping equipment, including survival gear and a first aid kit. Police originally thought the two might be camping in the area or in Lincoln County, Oregon.

They were found in Missoula on Sunday, according to the release.
