PAPILLION, Neb. (WOWT) - Missing students from the Papillion La Vista Community School district have been located together out of state, and all are safe with law enforcement.

A flyer had been circling online with information about a missing Papillion La Vista High School student, and law enforcement officials said they were investigating the situation.

The Sarpy County Sheriff's Office was investigating, but said the 14-year-old female, along with a 15-year-old and 17-year-old males from Papillion South High School were believed to have run away together.

Law enforcement does not believe the female was in danger.

The entire press release from before the teens were found is copied below.

The Sarpy County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the runaway of three Papillion students. One student is a 14 year old female who attends Papillion La Vista High School. The other two are a 15 year old male and 17 year old male who attend Papillion South High School. It is believed that all three juveniles are together and may be headed out of state. Our investigation indicates that this is a runaway situation.

We are aware that there is a flyer circulating that indicates the female is endangered. Although we are concerned about her age, at this time, we do not have any information to cause us to believe she is endangered. We are concerned about her age and we are actively working to locate her and the other two juveniles.
