Four teenage friends, Jevon Hirst, Harvey Owen, Wilf Henderson, and Hugo Morris, went on a camping trip in Snowdonia, North Wales last weekend. They were excited to have a good time together, but unfortunately, something really sad happened.
They started their trip on Sunday morning and were supposed to come back the next day. But when their families didn’t hear from them for a while, they got concerned and called the police.
A report was filed, saying the four of them were missing. The authorities then started searching extensively in the woods.
Helicopters, Coast Guard people, and mountain rescue teams joined in the search too.
After two days of looking, the authorities found the bodies of the four teens inside an overturned car partly in the water.
Right now, it seems like this was a very sad accident. The police are thinking about the families and friends of the four young men during this tough time.
The boys’ car went off the road in a village named Gareg.
Of course, their families were really sad about it.
Owen’s mom, Crystal, wrote a very emotional post on Facebook. She said it feels like she’s stuck in a nightmare that she wishes she could wake up from, but she can’t. Crystal also mentioned that she would be closing her business for a while because she can’t focus on work when her son is gone, and she won’t see him again.
Crystal, Owen’s mom, didn’t know the boys were going on a camping trip. She thought Owen was staying at a friend’s house for the night. She mentioned that she wouldn’t have allowed him to go camping in winter weather if she had known.
Henderson’s girlfriend’s mom, Lisa Corfield, talked about the boys. She said they weren’t experienced campers and hadn’t been to that place before. They had a tent and sleeping bags but only brought the basics.
Lisa shared a photo of the boy who passed away and her daughter on Facebook. She described him as a “lovely, kind young lad” who treated her daughter the way every parent would want.
Many people are sending their condolences to the families of the boys during this sad time. The families are still trying to understand what happened and dealing with the fact that their boys are no longer with them.
We are deeply sorry for this tragic loss.
