UPDATE: The girls have been found and are safe at home. According to Cochise County Sheriff's Dept. the girls went to a local church and spent the night with family friends.
SIERRA VISTA - The search is on in Cochise County for two girls who went missing overnight.
According to the Cochise County Sheriff's Department, at approximately 12:45 AM, authorities were notified that 14 year old Haley Churney and her five-year-old cousin, Brittany Marshal left the home after some sort of family issue.
Churney apparently packed up some personal belongings, clothes and shoes and left the home with Marshal. They told family that they were going to the "wash" down the street to look for tadpoles. This was around 8 p.m.
The Cochise County Search and Rescue Team searched the wash area off of North Carmichael Avenue but didn't find anyone in or around the wash area.
The Sheriff's Department says at this time both girls have been entered as missing and possibly endangered, due to the inclement weather overnight.
Churney is approximately 4 feet tall, 80-90 pounds, hazel eyes with blond shoulder length hair. She was last seen wearing a green shirt and dark colored pants. Marshal is approximately 3 feet tall, 50 pounds, blue eyes and blond hair. She was last seen wearing a pink and white shirt and pink skirt.
Anyone with information on their whereabouts can call 432-9500 and all calls will remain confidential
