UPDATE: Thurs 3:25 PM, April 17, 2014
Two teenage boys will be reunited with their family Thursday night after missing for more nine months.
The Waushara County Sheriff's Department tells NewsChannel 7 Cody and Joseph Untereiner, 17, showed up at the department around 4 p.m. Wednesday, April 16.
The boys are expected to be picked up by their father Thursday evening.
Who the boys were with, and where they were is still under investigation.
They were considered runaways.
In December, NewsChannel 7 introduced you to Andy Elmhorst. Elmhorst said he first saw the flyer for the missing teens at a truck stop in Tomah and had begun distributing copies of the flyers everywhere he travels.
Andy contacted us Thursday after he was contacted by the boys' family letting us know the boys were returning home.
ORIGINAL STORY: Dec, 13, 2013
Spreading the word about missing children is often the key to bringing them home safely.
Andy Elmhorst is a very dedicated man. He served in Vietnam and ever since then has devoted his life to driving trucks across the country. Now he is using that same passion and dedication to bring awareness to two missing twins from Wild Rose.
Cody and Joseph Untereiner, 17, have not been seen since August 4th. The teens are believed to have run away and may still be in either the Wild Rose or Shawano area.
Elmhorst said he first saw the flyer for the missing teens at a truck stop in Tomah and has now begun distributing copies of the flyers everywhere he travels. In fact, he has given out hundreds and now has them up in five different states.
He says he is doing it because he wants to bring attention to all children who are either abducted or that run away from home.
Andy said he does not know either the boys or their family. He says he just wants to help bring them home.
Andy has even offered $1,000 of his own money as a reward to help bring them home.
