Two Massachusetts teens - a 13-year-old boy and a 14-year-old girl - have been found safe at an Occupy site in Newark, N.J., two days after they went missing from their homes.

Police said Connor Southard of Manchester-by-the-Sea and Laura Dixon of Wenham were located on Monday and were said to be in good health.

It was not immediately clear how they ended up at the Occupy Newark site. Police believe the teens - described as boyfriend and girlfriend - left their homes on Saturday night and were last seen getting out of a cab at Boston's South Station early on Sunday morning.

Police agencies in several states had been searching for the youths.
