Two cousins — a teen and infant girl — were reunited with family members Wednesday morning after disappearing from the Southwest Side Chicago Lawn neighborhood Tuesday afternoon.

Dominique Jackson, 16, and her 11-month-old cousin Morgan Melchor had last been seen about 1 p.m. near the 1900 block of West 67th, according to a missing persons alert from police News Affairs.

The cousins were reunited with family Wednesday morning, police News Affairs Officer Jose Estrada said.

They were unharmed but were taken to Holy Cross Hospital for evaluation as a precaution, Estrada said.
