BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — Authorities say four Butte teenagers missing since Monday night have been found unharmed at a family member's cabin at Canyon Ferry Reservoir east of Helena.

Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff George Skuletich tells The Montana Standard (http://bit.ly/15HsQvW ) that investigators received a tip that the boys could be at the reservoir and asked Lewis and Clark County law enforcement to check it out.

The boys, who range in age from 15 to 17, went missing from the Georgetown Lake area on Monday night after one of them threatened to commit suicide.

Skuletich said Tuesday evening their parents were heading up to get them.
