Report: 2 missing WI teens possibly in Minneapolis

The pair, from Osceola, haven't been seen since Friday.

The disappearance of two Wisconsin teens this weekend has authorities on alert throughout the region.

Joshua Langeback-Cross and Lanaya R. Wistrom, both of Osceola and 15 years old, were last seen "on foot" on Friday.

Langeback-Cross is said to be wearing grey athletic pants and a "GOAT" shirt, while Wistrom is wearing "black leggings and a grey tank top" along with a sweater of unknown color, the Polk County Sheriff's Department says:

Joshua is also carrying a red backpack, the release says. 

There are no other details regarding their disappearance; however, a Facebook user identifying herself as Lanaya's cousin says Joshua's phone was pinged in Minnesota "near the stadium":

The Star Tribune reports this is Minneapolis. 

Anyone with information on the teens' whereabouts is asked to contact 715-485-8300.
