WBFO/AM 970 News

A pair of teenagers who disappeared from a picnic at Chestnut Ridge Park have been found.

Carly Chew and Sharon DeCarlo, both 16 years old, were seen wandering away from an organized picnic on Friday afternoon. Concerns grew as hours passed, and a broad search was launched in the evening. The Erie County Sheriff's helicopter along with 50 officers were engaged in the search.

The girls were located during the overnight hours.

Sheriff's officials do not believe that foul play was involved.

Saturday & Sunday 6 a.m. to 12 p.m.
