WELLINGTON, FL (WFLX) - Two teens, missing since Monday, have been found in Hallandale.

UPDATE, WED 9 AM: Brian Ortiz-Molina, 14, and his girlfriend, Rebecca Collins-Fisher, 16, were last seen at about 8 a.m. Monday walking along South Shore Boulevard in Wellington.

"I'm just terrified. It's something that, unless you have a child or had a child that's gone missing, you can't explain it," said Rebecca's mother, Wendy Elgouhary.

Elgouhary told investigators her daughter is slightly autistic, but fully functional.

The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office said the teens attend special education classes at Wellington High and have been dating for several weeks.

Wendy, Rebecca's Mom, just said they are on the way to Hallandale Police Department to pick the teens up. She said the two are ok, but police are not telling them much more than they are ok.

We'll keep you posted on any further updates.
