SYOSSET, N.Y. (AP) - Police on Long Island say they’re still looking for one of the teenage boys who were reported missing from a group home.

Nassau County police say two of the boys were located Tuesday. A 15-year-old was still missing.

Newsday (https://bit.ly/M9TBiW ) says they left MercyFirst in Syosset (sy-AH’-seht) around 8 p.m. Sunday.

The home is one of several around Long Island and New York City for at-risk youth run by MercyFirst. The nonprofit is an offshoot of the Sisters of Mercy Catholic organization.

Sisters of Mercy referred calls to MercyFirst, which declined to comment.

Anyone with information about the missing teen’s whereabouts is asked to call the Nassau County police missing persons squad at 516 573-7347 or 911.
