Twin girls reported missing Wednesday afternoon in Plymouth, Massachusetts, were found safe in Lewiston on Wednesday night.

Plymouth police identified the 9-year-old sisters as Je t’aime Valentine and Dasia Valentine.

Their mother and her boyfriend – their names have not been released – were arrested when the girls were found at the mother’s home in Lewiston, said Massachusetts State Police spokesman David Procopio.

The fourth-graders at West Elementary School in Plymouth were not met by a parent when they got off their bus on Pilgrim Hill Road around 4 p.m., Plymouth police said. WCSH-TV in Portland reported that the girls were forced into a car.

Additional details surrounding their disappearance were not available Wednesday night.
