DRAPER, Utah (AP) — Authorities say they've found two of the four teen boys who ran away from a center for troubled teens in Draper.

Police say an 18-year-old and a 17-year-old boy were found at an Orem gas station Wednesday, less than a day after vanishing from the Genesis Youth Center. Police Lt. Craig Martinez says a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old were still missing Wednesday, and are believed to be in or near Salt Lake City.

Martinez says the four boys may have been picked up by someone driving a stolen vehicle. The vehicle was not with the boys when they were found at the gas station.

Arrest warrants had been issued for the teens, who had been wearing dark green sweatshirts, basketball shoes and dark green shorts of sweatpants.
