Missing boys found ransacking house, drawing on themselves

(Continued)

OKTAHA, Okla. —

With sunlight and warmth ticking away, rescuers were growing more frantic by the minute. And when the boys were found, their relief was clear.

Keefeton Volunteer Fire Department Chief Speck Plunkett and Mohr coordinated much of the search of the area.

"We’re thankful the kids aren’t hurt and that they're safe," Plunkett said. "A lot of people worked very hard today to find them."

Muskogee County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Mike Grace said he believed the boys had recently run away as many as three times.

"At this point, (The Department of Human Services) has to be notified," Grace said. "We’re glad the kids are OK and safe, but they’ve done this before and it has escalated to this point now."
