BLUE SPRINGS, Mo. (AP) - Two suburban Kansas City girls with autism have been found in a wooded area near their Blue Springs home several hours after walking away overnight, possibly in search of food.

Blue Springs police spokeswoman Jennifer Dachenhausen says a police officer found 14-year-old Katherine Oglesby and 11-year-old Annabelle Oglesby on Wednesday morning hiding in some woods.

The two were last seen walking away from their home at 4:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Dachenhausen says the foster sisters have a food obsession disorder and don’t like talking to people.

Katie Oglesby was wearing an orange shirt and Anna Oglesby was wearing a floral dress when they left the home.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol has canceled a missing and endangered persons alert it issued earlier for the girls.
