missing-teens-mayELDRED TWP., Pa. (EYT) – Sources say a second stolen pickup truck has been connected to a multi-state search for two missing Ohio teens who are now suspects in an attempted robbery.

Authorities say the teens, identified as Triston Kindle, 16, of Upper Sandusky, and Rose May, 15, of Sycamore, were reported missing from their residences on June 1.

They were believed to be traveling together in a stolen 2004 Ford F-250. The truck was found abandoned on Caldwell Corners Road on Tuesday.

Dozens of police officers scoured the Brookville and Sigel areas, but were unable to locate the teens. State Police helicopters were also used in the search.

According to one eyewitness in the Sigel area, the search was put on hold on Wednesday evening; however, May’s parents remained in the area to continue searching.

Marienville-based State Police issued a release today indicating that a 2010 Ford F-150 was recovered by police early Thursday in Elizabeth Township, Allegheny County. The truck, stolen from the Eldred Township Building parking lot on Wednesday, is believed to have been used in an attempted robbery early Thursday morning.

According to KDKA, police received a report of a robbery in progress at a store in Elizabeth Township.

When an officer arrived on the scene, the robbery suspect ran from the store and jumped into the truck. While attempting to stop the suspect, the officer was dragged by the vehicle. The officer suffered minor injuries, according to police.

The vehicle was then ditched in Elizabeth Township, near a coal mine.

It’s unclear where the couple are headed; however, it is believed that the pair are armed with at least a shotgun.

May is described as 5’4” tall, 130 lbs., green eyes, and blondish-brown hair.

Kindle is described as 5’5” tall, 150 lbs., brown eyes, and brown hair.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of May and Kindle is asked to contact the Wyandot County Sheriff’s Office at 419-294-2362 or the local police.
