Two Michigan teenagers who expressed suicidal thoughts to their families and friends have gone missing and are believed to be together after vanishing on Saturday night in a 2017 Jeep Wrangler belonging to one of their households.
16-year-old Timothy Wieber of Plymouth Township and 16-year-old Lillian Nguyen of Canton Township left their homes on Saturday night, with Michigan State Police authorities operating under the assumption that they disappeared together, Fox 2 Detroit reported.
They are likely driving a gray 2017 Jeep Wrangler and were last seen near Rossford, Ohio, which is just outside of Toledo. The pair was seen on surveillance footage as they used an ATM at around 11:00 pm on Saturday.
Both teens have suffered a troubled history: Nguyen reportedly suffers from depression and Wieber has run away from home in the past. Both have also told family and friends that they want to end their lives, but it is not clear whether either have made any attempts.
Police describe Nguyen as an Asian female with black hair and brown eyes who was last seen wearing a blue jean jacket, blue jeans, white Converse shoes, and a black-and-white striped scarf.
Wieber is described as a white male with brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a green jacket, a black hoodie, blue jeans, and black boots.
Anybody with any information about the teens’ whereabouts has been asked to contact either the Canton Police Department, who is handling Nguyen’s case, or the Plymouth Township Police Department, who is handling Wieber’s case.
