Chicago police are seeking information about a pair of missing teens who were last seen outside a North Side high school late last week.
The Chicago Police Department has issued missing persons alerts for 15-year-olds Sujeily Zepeda and Izebella DeLeon, who were last seen Friday outside Amundsen High School, where both are students.
In a letter to the school community Monday, Amundsen Principal Anna Pavichevich said, “Events like these cause tremendous anxiety about the safety and security of all students.”
She continued: “Please know that at this time, beyond being Amundsen students, there is no indication that this disappearance has any direct connection to our school or other Amundsen student."
