Police launch desperate search as four teens vanish after heading on road trip | UK | News

A desperate search has been launched by North Wales Police after four teenagers vanished during a camping trip.

Jevon Hirst, Harvey Owen, Wilf Henderson and Hugo Morris, understood to be in their late teens, were last seen getting into a silver Ford Fiesta on Sunday morning.

They haven’t been seen since. The car’s registration plate is HY14 GVO.

Travelling near the Welsh coastal areas of Harlech and Porthmadog, the four could have been heading into popular destination Snowdonia. 

They are believed to be from the Shrewsbury area and were due home on Monday morning.

However, none of them have made contact with friends or family, and their phones are switched off.

They had camping equipment with them and are understood to be experienced in the outdoor pastime.

Families have been left “frantic with worry”, as the lack of contact was out of character for the boys.

Harvey’s mother, sharing the appeal by North Wales Police on Facebook, 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.”

Lisa Corfield, thought to be Wilf’s girlfriend’s mother also wrote on Facebook: “My daughter’s boyfriend is the one lad. 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.”

Police and mountain rescue teams are searching the area for the group and have urged anyone who may have seen them to contact them immediately. 

North Wales Police said in a statement: “Police have concerns for four young males missing from the Harlech/Porthmadog area since the morning of the 19/11/23.

“The four males’ names are Jevon Hirst, Harvey Owen, Wilf Henderson and Hugo Morris.

“They were travelling in a Silver Ford Fiesta registration HY14 GVO.

“Any sightings please contact North Wales Police and quote ref num A184194.”
