Parents of two Texas sixth graders who went missing on Tuesday believe that the girls were inspired by a viral Facebook 'game' that convinces teens to run away from home for 48 hours. 

Mary Tran Le, 13, and Tianny Granja, 12, went missing at approximately 7.30am on Tuesday while they were near Wilcrest Dive and Beechnut Street. Both girls are sixth graders at Owens Middle School and they are described as being best friends.

And while the girls never boarded their school bus, family members are hoping that the two are just taking part in the controversial challenge and not in more danger.
