HILLSBORO, N.M. — An Amber Alert has been canceled for five teenage boys whom authorities reported missing from a rural New Mexico ranch for troubled youth on Friday.

New Mexico state police said the five boys — ages 13 to 17 — were physically accounted for on Sunday. Four other teen boys who were a part of the group that authorities originally said was missing were found safe and were back with their parents on Saturday.

A spokesman for the State Children, Youth and Families Department said authorities couldn't consider the boys safe until they saw them.

Authorities are investigating claims of abuse at the Tierra Blanca High Country Youth Program.
