MARION COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

Marion County dispatch says two missing teens have been found.

The father of one of the missing boys, Logan Poe, says Logan and three of his friends left Saturday to go four-wheeling. They said they would be home by 2 p.m.

Logan's father, Bobby, says he received a text from him around 7 a.m. and that was the last they heard of him.

They went searching for him in the area the boys were supposed to be four-wheeling and found Logan's truck but no sign of him.

Two of Logan's friends made it home Saturday, but Logan and Jonathan Green were still missing Sunday.

The boys said they were four-wheeling in the woods when they got lost and their four-wheeler broke down.

"We turned around and thought we could make it back but we took a wrong turn," says Logan.

They wandered through the woods until they found a deer blind where they spent the night.

"We pulled over when it got dark, got in a hunting blind and stayed the night there," says Logan.

The teens say they were terrified they may not find their way back home.

"We had to keep looking," says Jonathan. "We had to keep moving, look for a highway a house or something."

In the morning, they continued walking through the woods when they happened upon the search party.

The boys were not hurt, but did say they were hungry and grateful they were found.
