The mother of one of the four teenagers who were found dead in an overturned car on a camping trip has spoken out about the 'nightmare' incident.
On Tuesday (21 November), the bodies of Jevon Hirst, Harvey Owen, Wilf Henderson and Hugo Morris were recovered from an overturned Ford Fiesta on the A4085 at Garreg, near Tremadog.
The car was partially submerged in water, North Wales Police said.
Superintendent Owain Llewellyn said: “Police officers attended and located a Ford Fiesta vehicle on its roof, partially submerged in water.
“Tragically, the bodies of four young males were recovered from within the vehicle.
“The families of the missing boys have been informed.
“At present, this appears to have been a tragic accident, and our thoughts are with the family and friends of the four young men at this very difficult time.”
Inquiries into why the car left the road are underway, the force said.
Earlier, the teenagers’ worried parents had reposted a police appeal for information on social media.
Crystal Owen, Harvey’s mother, said she did not know the teenagers were going on a camping trip and thought they were going to stay at a friend’s grandfather’s house.
Taking to Facebook on Wednesday morning (22 November), the mother said she feels like she is in a 'nightmare I could wake up from but I’m not'.
The mum - who runs a cupcake shop with her partner - wrote: "I just wanted to say I do appreciate people’s kindness but no amount of messages is going to help me overcome this.
"Nothing will make this nightmare go away.
"I would just like to inform people that due to me having a moderate sized team now I am not able to just close the shop and keep my staff's wages paid and I haven’t had the time to even organise closure so it’s easier mentally to just switch off and leave it open as usual.
"I cannot cope with dealing with anything related so will be leaving the shop in the good hands of my partner and team for the time being.
"I am aiming to let them take over the social media and messaging etc but that won’t be for a few days so everything will be as normal but you won’t be inundated with cake pictures."
