Lost Queens children in Range Rover found in Delaware
Two children were found safe after driving a Range Rover from Queens to the State of Delaware on Monday.
Police started the search Monday morning for a 12-year-old boy described as Guyanese wearing a teal sweater and gray sweatpants in the company of a 7-year-old girl also described as Guayanese and wearing a blue sweater and gray sweatpants who was on the passenger side.
The duo was last seen driving the white Range Rover with a New York license plate KGD4611 around 9:49 a.m and heading towards the Verrazano Bridge.
An NBC news report stated that the two were cousins.
They were believed to have crossed over the Verrazzano narrows bridge to reach their destination.
The pair reportedly took off from an address on 115th street in South Ozone Park shortly before 9 a.m.
Approximately an hour later, a license plate reader located their vehicle heading to the bridge to Staten Island. Police issued a citywide alert at about 10:30 a.m.
They were located hours later by Delaware authorities near the New Jersey-Delaware border.
According to NBC, the children were found at about 2:30 p.m after attempting to use a credit card at a rest stop.
Police said they will be reunited with their family.
