Search for missing teens over


The second of two missing Maricopa teens was found.  

Maricopa Police Department last week asked the public to help in an ongoing search of 14-year-olds Karleigh Cardinas and Sawyer Ross.  

Both teens, who police said left their Maricopa home Sept. 22, were found this week. 

InMaricopa reported Monday morning Ross returned home. MPD spokesperson Monica Williams said Cardinas had “been in contact with others.” 

Officers concluded their search today. 

“Karleigh Cardenas was located early this morning,” Williams said.
