Charity Bell, 14, and Elliot Dowd, 15, had been staying at New Beginnings youth shelter at 491 Main St. when they “eloped from the home” together April 8 and hadn’t returned, Lt. David St. Pierre said in a media statement. The parents of the teens and the shelter were concerned and sought assistance from police in locating the children.

Bell was located, but Dowd was still missing Wednesday morning, according to an email from St. Pierre. Dowd was found later in the morning.
