DETROIT - Two teens from Westland have disappeared after visiting a family member in Detroit.

Jacob Kudla, 18, and Jourdon Bobbish, 17, have been missing since Sunday evening.

Jourdon's mother, Carrie Bobbish, tells Local 4 her son and his friend Jacob went to visit one of Jacob's relatives on Detroit's eastside in the 19600 block of Beland.

They left the house around 10 p.m. Sunday and haven't been seen or heard from since.

"I want my son home, I am lost," said Jacob's mother, Virgie Kudla. "This morning my desperation has turned into determination."

The mother said there hasn't been any phone activity or credit card activity from her son.

"It's like they just vanished," she said. "My motivation is to find those boys. My son is coming home today, my son is going to sleep in his bed tonight, Jourdan is coming home today and Jourdan will sleep in his bed tonight"

Vehicle teens drove now found

Detroit police said the Chevrolet Cavalier the teens were driving the night they went missing was discovered abandoned at an apartment complex in the city.

Several items were stolen from the car including a stereo system. The stolen items were traced back to two people who live in the building nearby. Those two people were taken into custody but police have not said whether they are connected to the teens' disappearance. Police did say they think the two men who were arrested used bleach to wipe their fingerprints off of the Cavalier. 

The vehicle has been impounded and is being processed for evidence.

Families search for Jacob and Jourdon

The families have filed a missing persons report in Westland and Detroit.

Meanwhile, family members have been putting up flyers and going door to door in the area the car was found.

Anyone with information about the teens whereabouts is asked to call Westland police or Detroit police.
