DRAPER — The last two of the four missing boys that ran away from Genesis Youth Center in Draper on Tuesday have been found. Authorities found them in Salt Lake City on Thursday shortly after 10 p.m. They were both taken to a detention facility, a press release from Department of Human Services said. The other two boys were found in Orem on Wednesday.
The investigation is ongoing and additional information has not been released at this time. According to reports given to police, the boys were seen on Interstate 15 possibly in a 2004 Isuzu Trooper Utility Vehicle that was reported stolen from JCW’s The Burger Boys Restaurant in Lehi. The Isuzu Trooper was stolen around 12:30 a.m. on Wednesday close to where the boys were seen leaving the center.
The boys are not considered dangerous but all have committed crimes that, had they been adults, would have been considered misdemeanors or felonies, Elizabeth Sollis of the Utah Department of Human Services said.
