According to authorities, one of the men was last seen wearing a long sleeve black shirt and dark blue jeans. The second male (driver) was described as a medium/large body frame with short hair.

Officials say the vehicle was possibly a Nissan or Toyota, that had a slanted looking bubble type rear with larger red tail lights, dirty silver rims and possibly a cross hanging from the rear-view mirror — last seen heading south on Summer Street.
