LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — UPDATE- Both children were located. A witness who saw their pictures in the media recognized them and called the police.

Previous story:

Lafayette police are asking to public to help find two missing children. It's the second time in less than a month that police have had to look for them. 

Twelve-year-old Dashanti Funches and 13-year-old Damarcus Funches were last seen at 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Police say they ran away from their mother and took clothing with them.

They could have a lime green suitcase and a camouflage-colored gym bag with them.

As we previously reported, Dashanti and Demarcus were reported missing earlier this month. They were found a few days later.

Police believe the two could still be in the area, due to a lack of transportation.

Detectives have gone to the previous places where they have known to go, but have still not found them.

Dashanti is considered at-risk because of her age.

Anyone with information is urged to call Lafayette police at 765-807-1200 or the WeTip hotline at 1-800-78 CRIME.
