PANAMA CITY, FL (WAVE) – After running for 14 days, Dalton Hayes, 18, and Cheyenne Phillips, 13, have been taken into custody.

The teens from Grayson County, Kentucky left the state on January 3 and had been on the run ever since.



The Grayson County Sheriff's Office says on Sunday, January 18 around 12:10 a.m., Panama City Beach law enforcement and US Marshal's Service found Hayes and Phillips asleep in a 2001 Toyota Tundra that was stolen in Henry County, Georgia.

Officers surrounded the vehicle and both teens were taken into custody without incident. The process has begun to get both extradited back to Kentucky to answer for multiple felony charges.
