DEDHAM, Mass. (WPRI) — Thermal imaging and a bird’s eye view helped Massachusetts State Police track down a pair of missing teenagers on Thursday.
Police said the two 14-year-old girls wandered off from a care facility in Dedham.
Massachusetts State Police Air Wing sent in a helicopter to assist local police and K-9 units in the search.
Around 7:30 p.m., the helicopter’s infrared camera picked up two heat signatures in the nearby woods. The flight crew – Troopers John Pina and Justin Grigg – sent the search teams that way and they located the girls, according to police.
The teens were brought to an area hospital for evaluation.
