BALLVILLE TOWNSHIP, Ohio — UPDATE: The two girls have been found safe, and the according to deputies.

The Sandusky County Sheriff Department was looking for two missing girls who they believed to be in danger.

"They may be in danger and don't even know it, " said Sandusky County Sheriff Chris Hilton.

The tow girls, who are cousins, were reported missing in Ballville Township early around 4 o'clock Wednesday morning, deputies said.

"I saw her Tuesday night before I went to bed," that was about 10 o'clock," the mom of one of the girls said.

Just a few hours later, they were gone. "I got up at 2:54, I always check on the kids. They weren't in [the girl's] room." she explained through her tears.

That's when she called police.

It was believed the two girls were with 18-year-old Isaiah Kelly. Kelly was supposed to be sentenced on Monday for a domestic violence conviction but did not show up at court. Authorities said he has a criminal past.

"The most serious he has is domestic violence and carrying a concealed weapon," Hilton said.

Hilton said the girls were last seen with Kelly Wednesday morning around 9 o'clock.

Both girls are high school sophomores. One of the girl is home schooled, has a small group of friends and has no history of running away, her mother said.

The girl's family is worried. " Please, help me bring our girls home, please," begged the mother of one of the girls.
