13-year-olds Emma Hansen and Derek Siefken of Edgerton have been found and are safe.
Shortly after 5 p.m., when officials from the Edgerton Police Department were talking with the media about the case, a phone call came to the father of Derek. The father was heard saying, “Where are you?” This presumably indicated the two were found. Minutes later, the Hansen mother confirmed the teens were safe. They apparently had been hiding in the woods in Stoughton along Highway N.
Officials from the Edgerton Police Department asked for help from the public after the two teens left their homes on Wednesday, June 13th. Through text messages left with friends and phone conversations, it is believed that one or both may be at risk. Their last contact via text message happened around 3 p.m. Wednesday.
The pair had been boyfriend and girlfriend. Their parents say there had been some drama between the two — and it ended up in a breakup.
The teens’ parents say the two were last seen walking on Highway N towards Stoughton. Edgerton police had reportedly planned to bring in search dogs to check that area.
