UK: Massive police search for four missing teenagers who went out for a camping trip and didn’t return

A massive police search is underway for four teenagers who have went missing after going on a camping trip, only for them not to return and all contact to be lost

Jevon Hirst, Harvey Owen, Wilf Henderson and Hugo Morris, thought to be in their late teens, were last seen in the Harlech and Porthmadog areas of Gwynedd on Sunday morning.

The young men, believed to be from the Shrewsbury area, were due home from their trip on Monday morning but none of them have made contact with friends and family and their phones are all off

North Wales Police have launched an urgent hunt for the four missing men, as their ‘desperate’ families say the lack of contact is out of character and leaving them ‘frantic with worry’.

However, it has emerged that the four – who were thought to be travelling into Snowdonia national park in a silver Ford Fiesta, registration HY14 GVO – were not experienced campers and only had a tent and sleeping bags with them.

As of lunchtime, the car they were using has since been found unaccompanied.

Harvey’s mother reposted the appeal post shared by North Wales Police on Facebook and wrote: ‘I am frantic with worry, one of these boys is my son Harvey, please please please share and tag anyone in Wales or get in touch with any information you may have.’

Another family member, Mel Hirst, wrote: ‘Please keep sharing… if anyone knows anything or can think of anything that may help find the boys please contact the police. We are desperate for any news.’

Ms Corfield also wrote on Facebook: ‘They have been missing up Snowdonia after going camping yesterday and were due home this morning but have not been seen or heard from since.

‘Please share with as many as possible so we can try and get them home safely thank you.’

Helicopters have been sent up to search the area for the missing boys.
