UPDATE: 2 more missing teens found safe; 5 still missing


New Mexico State Police say two missing boys last seen at Tierra Blanca ranch are back with their parents tonight, but an Amber alert is still in effect for seven other children.

Those boys are 13-year-old Charlie Lamb, 13-year-old Mayson Myers, 16-year-old Peter Adams, 16-year-old Evan Kogler, 17-year-old Bryce Hall, 17-year-old Oscar Ruiz and 17-year-old David Easter.

The two boys found safe at home are 16-year-old Ryan Sibbett and 15-year-old Michael Rozell, but it is unclear how they were reunited.

State police say it is possible others are with their parents now too, but they are not confirming it yet.

As of Saturday afternoon, state police had not had any contact with ranch owner Scott Chandler.

State police believe Chandler may have been with the boys at least at the beginning.

He is a person of interest, but is not yet charged with anything.

State police ask parents, Chandler and anyone else who may know the boys to call (575) 382-2500.
