An Amber Alert remains in effect Sunday for five teenage boys reported missing from a rural New Mexico ranch for troubled youth.

New Mexico state police have said four other boys they were searching for are back with their parents.

Authorities say they think the five boys are in danger, while an attorney for the ranch says all are safely with their parents.

A spokesman for the State Children, Youth and Families Department said Sunday that the agency can't take the attorney's word on the teenagers. Henry Varela says authorities won't consider the boys safe until they see them.

Authorities were executing a search warrant at the Tierra Blanca High Country Youth Program near Hillsboro last week when they discovered the teens weren't there. Authorities are investigating claims of abuse at the ranch.
