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

Elizabeth Sollis of the Utah Department of Human Services says a 15-year-old and a 16-year-old were found a little after 10 p.m. Thursday at a home in Salt Lake City. They were taken to a detention center.

The other two runaways, who were 17 and 18 years old, were found at an Orem gas station Wednesday, less than a day after vanishing from the Genesis Youth Center. They were also taken into custody.

Sollis says police are still investigating what happened during the time the boys were gone from the work camp, but she says she's not aware of them committing any violent crime during their escapade.
