HILLSBORO, N.M. (AP) -- Authorities in New Mexico say an Amber Alert will remain in effect for five teenage boys reported missing from a rural ranch for troubled youth until they can confirm they're OK.

Authorities said that by late Saturday, four of the nine young people that had been missing were back with their parents and removed from the alert notice. But police said believed the five others were still in danger. An attorney for the ranch said all the children were with their parents.

A search warrant was executed Friday as part of the investigation of abuse at the Tierra Blanca High Country Youth Program, located at a 30,000-acre compound in high desert country, about 7 miles from Hillsboro.
