SAINT JOHN, N.B. -- EDITOR'S NOTE: As of Nov. 12, 2020, the two 13-year-old boys had been found and were safe. The girl was found on Nov. 24.

Police believe a 14-year-old girl missing in Saint John, N.B., is with two missing 13-year-old boys, and her mother is pleading with her to come home.

"We love her. We want her back where she belongs and is safe," said the girl's mother. "Her little dog misses her, her sister misses her. We're just kind of holding on, here . . . I wish that she would contact us."

Police in Saint John say the woman,s daughter is believed to be with two 13-year-old boys missing from Chamcook, N.B.

The mother said she's been getting a lot of messages forwarded to her from other children who appear to be using Snapchat to communicate with the missing teens. She said her daughter knows the two boys from school.

"I'm not 100 per cent sure where they are, but I do know they are together and at this time, we've heard they're safe. For now," she said in an interview. "We're quite worried and concerned. What could happen? Your imagination goes everywhere, especially when you hear there was a car taken."

In a news release Monday, Saint John police said the girl was last seen Saturday evening on the west side of the city. The boys were last seen Thursday afternoon at their homes in Chamcook, N.B., about 100 kilometres west of Saint John.

Police initially believed the youths may have been driving a black 1990 two-door SAAB 900 convertible with a New Brunswick licence plate number GIW 158, however, that vehicle was recovered in Saint John on Sunday.

St. Stephen RCMP said they found a black 1990 SAAB 900 convertible believed to have been driven by the boys in Saint John on Sunday. In a release Monday, they said it's possible the boys managed to gain access to another vehicle.
