— Police said Monday that two Apex teens who ran away on Friday have been located and were returned home. 

Brianna Gruber, 14, and Roberto Aguilar, 15, both left notes stating that they were running away together, police said. Investigators said they had no reason to believe that the pair, who were last seen Friday at Apex High School, didn't leave of their own accord.

Police did not say where the teens were found. They were reunited with their families on Monday.

    I'm guessing they ran out of money before they ran out of desire. thepeopleschamp

    I'm guessing you're correct. Running away with $200, $500, or $1,000 goes pretty quickly as most of us know from being on vacation where you pay for 3 meals, incidentals, rooms, etc.

    Living on love is a romantic idea in a young girls mind but not very realistic.

    Peopleschamp. After I returned from my most recent deployment, someone told me you were curious about my background. What can I help you with?

    Great story we2hedonists. If someone doesn't want to be found, why should they be made to repay the search efforts? The balloon boy parents are different story. These kids did nothing illegal. This is why kids are allowed to serve their country, vote or drink until they reached the approved age. Kids, are kids and sometimes do foolish things. Home punishment? Definitely. Punitive court actions? Kidding right?

    This reminds me of something from a few years ago. My sister went missing. She was 28 at the time. She didn't report for work. Her neighbors hadn't seen her. She wasn't returning calls. Just vanished from the face of the earth. She was "missing" for 9 days. Since it was a small town local TV/Radio and all media outlets were reporting her disappearance. APB's, state police, FBI investigation a kidnapping. You get the picture. I'm her only blood relative. I wasn't the least bit concerned about her. Because of my nonchalant attitude about her disappearance, I became a "person of interest" in her case. Seems the email server at her company wasn't completely reliable and when she sent the email to all of her coworkers that she was going camping for a week in the Rocky's, nobody knew about it. They actually filed a civil suit to try to make her repay the money spent trying to locate her. She won of course. Thankfully.

    Glad they are safe. Now hopefully the adults in their lives can help them see the error of their ways. To repay the costs of the search efforts I suggest community service at a homeless shelter that serves families or working with an organization focused families searching for missing children.

    That's not a bad idea, they could be charge with crimminal mischief and made to do this.
