This story has been updated to reflect the two teens have been found safe. The original story is preserved below with identifying details removed.

Campbell River RCMP believe two missing teens are travelling together and trying to evade detection.

The pair were both reported missing around 3:30 p.m. on Feb. 12


Since then, police have determined the two teens travelled together and arrived on Quadra Island at approximately 1 p.m. on the day they were reported missing.

It is believed the teens have been attempting to evade detection and are somewhere on Quadra Island.

“Police and family are very concerned for the well being of [them],” said Campbell River RCMP’s Const. Maury Tyre.

“At this point in time, we believe that the girls may be attempting to camp in the thick forests of Quadra Island and are ill prepared to be doing so.”

Police are asking that anyone on Quadra Island and Cortes Island be extra vigilant in keeping an eye out for the teens and for any signs of a camp or a recently used camp site.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the Campbell River RCMP at 250-286-6221.
