Three New Jersey teens who disappeared last week were reportedly found safe over the weekend in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.
Bloomfield police announced Saturday that Ulises Yance, 16, Alex Lopez, 15, and Alexa Arenas, 16, were found safe but declined to provide additional details at this point in time. Alexa’s father, Carlos Arenas, told NJ.com that the teens had taken a train from Bloomfield to Pennsylvania, where they spent a couple of days.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Yance, Lopez, and Arenas were allegedly planning to flee to New Mexico with $8,000 that was taken from Yance’s father. NJ.com reported that the money has since been found. However, Arena’s father said the amount that was taken is still under dispute and mentioned that some of the money was recovered from the teens in Harrisburg.
The local outlet also reported that the teens were caught while trying to board a train in Harrisburg. It’s not immediately clear where they were headed to next or why they could’ve been headed to New Mexico.
