Suffolk police concerned about mental health of missing teenage cousins
Suffolk police are asking for the public's help in finding two missing cousins over concerns for their mental health.
Police say 13-year-old Alexandra Baca-Funes, of Bay Shore, and her cousin 16-year-old Freddy Turcios-Funes, of Deer Park, were reported missing after family members say they were not in their beds Tuesday morning.
Baca-Funes is 13 and 5 feet tall, weighing 160 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Turcios-Funes is 16 and stands 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 180 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes. Both are Hispanic.
Acting Police Commissioner Stuart Cameron tells News 12 police believe the two may be together and they are working with other law enforcement agencies to find the teenagers as soon as possible.
"There's some indicators they may be suicidal, so we're asking for the public's help in locating them as rapidly as possible," says Cameron.
Anyone with information on the missing teens is asked to call 911.
