Two missing teenagers return home safely

Two Milford teenagers missing since May 8, whom police believed may have gone to Manhattan and then as far away as Oklahoma or Texas, returned home safely Thursday.

Police issued a statement Thursday evening, saying simply, “Samantha Pabon and Noah Kalafus returned to Milford and are safe.”

Local police had received a report May 8 that Samantha Pabon, 16, and Noah Kalafus, 19, were last seen when they left Foran High School together.

Both are Foran High School students.

Police visited the school and sent out press advisories over the ensuing weeks saying the teens did not have access to a car and were believed to be traveling by public transportation.

First they were believed to be in Manhattan, and later police said they had gotten word that the pair might be taking public transportation to Oklahoma or Texas.
