Two missing 16-year-old Lincoln girls were found in Titusville, Florida Sunday morning.

Racheal Bates and Samantha Zuerlein were sleeping in a car parked outside of a Walmart store. They were last seen in Lincoln in a 1997 Lincoln Continental on March 15th.

Lincoln Police Capt. David Beggs says the girls are physically okay. Titusville police are holding them until their parents can make arrangements to pick them up.

Teresa Zuerlein said it was a huge relief to learn that her daughter is okay. Zuerlein was surprised the girls made it all the way to Florida and kept on the move.
