We will continue to work with the girls and their parents every step of the way as they begin on the path towards healing from this experience.”
Before being found, concerns were abundant for the two missing teens who were believed to be in Troy.
They say 15-year-old Jackeline Caraballo and 14-year-old Le’Airra Ivery, had been without their medication for 10 days.
The teens were reported missing from a residential treatment facility in Brooklyn on September 29.
