Deputies and search and rescue volunteers searched throughout the day Thursday for two Thousand Oaks teenagers who were reported missing early Thursday morning.


The family of Nicholas Marino, 13, reported him missing at 1:00 a.m. As deputies searched for the teen, they went to the home of his girlfriend, Kaylee Rebert, 14, and discovered she was also missing.


A K-9 tracked the teens to Wildwood Regional Park at the west end of Avenida De Los Arboles. Investigators and search and rescue personnel were joined by the Sheriff's Aviation Unit at first light. Rangers from the Conejo Open Space Conservation Agency also assisted with the search along with members of the Thousand Oaks Disaster Assistance Response Team.


The teens are considered at risk, and possibly suicidal, based on information gathered during the investigation.


Anyone with information about Marino and Rebert is asked to contact investigators at (805)494-8201.
