Andover police are asking for the public’s help in finding two missing teens.

In a statement e-mailed to media late Tuesday afternoon, the Andover Police Department identified the two teens as Zachary Fruechting and Alanna Ardanche and asked anyone with information about the two to call 911 or the Police Department, 316-733-5177. Police also provided photos of the two. Both are 15 years old.

The two “left their Andover school voluntarily and were last seen in the Kansas City, Missouri area around 11:30 today,” the police statement said. Police think the two are traveling together and have a handgun, the statement said.
