Missing Michigan boys Jacob Kudla and Jourdan Bobbish CBS Detroit

(CBS) WESTLAND, Mich. - Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a $25,000 reward for tips that would bring the safe return of missing Michigan teens Jacob Kudla, 18, and Jourdan Bobbish, 17, CBS Detroit reports.

The two teenagers was last seen Sunday evening when they left a relative's home on Detroit's east side. Virgie Kudla, Jacob's mother, grew concerned when her son didn't return home that night and filed a missing persons report in Westland.

Detroit Police impounded Kudla's 2001 Chevrolet Cavalier late Monday night, which was found with its sound system removed and abandoned near an apartment. Reports say the boys were carrying a large amount of cash for unknown reasons when they disappeared, according to CBS Detroit.

"There has been no activity on either of their cell phones since," Virgie Kudla said. "There has been no activity on either of their bank cards or bank accounts since. They've just kind of vanished."

Friends and families spent hours searching through Detroit neighborhoods and passing out flyers. But on Wednesday, police asked them to cease because authorities have gathered a task force to help with the search and they didn't want any interference.

If anyone has seen Jacob Kudla or Jourdan Bobbish, or has any information on their whereabouts, contact the Detroit Criminal Investigation unit at 313-596-5240. Anonymous tips can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-SPEAK-UP, online at or text "CSM" and your tip to CRIMES (274637).
