Police officers are currently at the scene with other emergency services. The families of the missing teens have been informed, according to the Guardian.

A North Wales Police spokesman said: “Following information from a member of the public, officers searching for four missing teenagers in the Porthmadog area have located the vehicle they were travelling in.

“Police officers and colleagues from other emergency services are currently at the location and the families of those involved have been kept updated. Further information will be released when available.”

Crystal Owen, the mother of Harvey, said she did not know they were going on a camping trip and thought they were going to stay at a friend’s grandfather’s house.

She told the BBC: “I am frantically worried, we haven’t slept a wink, we are desperate to chase any lead we can. If I’d have known (where he was going) I wouldn’t have let him due to the winter weather conditions. They are all sensitive, intelligent lads and we are just hoping they parked up, got lost, and are ok.”

Their worried parents reposted on social media the police appeal for information. One wrote: “Please keep sharing… if anyone knows anything or can think of anything that may help find the boys please contact the police. We are desperate for any news.”

Another 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.”

A Welsh Ambulance Service spokesman said: “We were called on Tuesday at approximately 10.08am to reports of an incident near the A4085 between Nantmor and Tan-Lan. We sent an operations manager, two emergency ambulances, and two Cymru high acuity response units to the scene where we were supported by the emergency medical retrieval and transfer service in two Wales Air Ambulance charity helicopters.”
