ENOCH, Iron County Police have apprehended two teenage boys who ran away from a group home for troubled teens in Sevier County.
One was arrested in a stolen vehicle, Iron County sheriff's dispatchers said Tuesday evening. The other was arrested in Enoch.
An endangered person advisory was issued for the boys, because one is a diabetic who had gone more than 36 hours without medication.
The two 17-year-olds ran away from the Sorenson's Ranch School near Koosharem early Monday morning. While on the run, Sevier County sheriff's deputies said, the boys managed to steal a cell phone from a pickup truck parked near Koosharem Reservoir.
"(One youth) was able to make a phone call to a friend," Sevier County sheriff's detective Nathan Curtis said. "He said, 'We're heading to Vegas. Don't call the cops."'
The phone was found early Tuesday morning on a farmer's driveway in Parowan. The teens were arrested late Tuesday afternoon. Both had a history of stealing cars and leading police on a chase, deputies said.
