Families of Fugitive Ky. Teens Anxious for Their Return

The families of two Kentucky teenagers captured in Florida Sunday, after nearly two weeks on the run, said they are anxious for them to return home to Kentucky, NBC News reported. Dalton Hayes, 18, and his 13-year-old girlfriend Cheyenne Phillips were found asleep in a stolen Toyota pickup in Panama City Beach early Sunday morning, according to the local sheriff's office. The teens, who were reported missing Jan. 3, are accused of stealing two cars, one with guns in it. Hayes' mother, Tammy Martin, told NBC News her son told her he is ready to return to Kentucky to "'face the consequences.'" Dalton's aunt, Teresa Hayes, said the family intends to help get both teens "back on the right path with lots of love."
