Yesterday 5 Upper Hutt College teenagers were reported missing after skipping the last period of school.
Apparently the group of 14-15 year olds had been planning for a while to run away to Palmerston North.
None of them have made any contact with their families, and one of the boys has deactivated his Facebook account.
Many locals were out all of last night searching Upper Hutt, including the Police.
Their cell phones have also been turned off.
The parents ask the teenagers to please come home.
If you know anything that could help the police find them, please contact them immediately.
