Two teenagers from the South Coast area have been reported missing since last week.

Authorities are searching for Tyrell Harrison, 16, of Acushnet, and Jasmine Chong, 17, of Quincy, SouthCoastToday.com reports. They believe the teens are together.

The duo are being considered runaways, “but they’re also considered missing because there’s no prior issues of this nature with the male party,” says Acushnet Police Officer Keith Ashley, who is investigating the case.

Police believe the teens may have headed up into New Hampshire, and that special attention should be paid to public transportation.

Authorities ask that anyone with information call Acushnet Police at 508-998-0240.
