BATAVIA TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — Two missing women who ran away from an adult foster care home near Coldwater Township have been found safe, troopers say.

The Michigan State Police issued Endangered Missing advisories for Char Gillum and Shelley Cunningham. They were last seen after they were heard talking about running away to Battle Creek with someone named James.

They were last seen around 1 a.m. on Saturday. Troopers announced Sunday evening that they had been found safe.

Authorities say both women have mental disabilities that require them to be supervised at the adult facility.
