An inquest was held today for FOUR boys who drowned while on a camping vacation and were discovered dead in a car.

When the catastrophe struck, friends Hugo Morris, 18, Harvey Owen, 16, and Jevon Hirst, 16, were traveling to Snowdonia.

On November 21, their remains were discovered in an upside-down, half submerged Ford Fiesta in Gwynedd, North Wales.

Today’s inquest heard how the four boys’ tentative cause of death was listed as drowning.

The police investigation into the tragedy has been deferred until further notice.

Senior coroner for North West Wales Kate Robertson stated: “A police inquiry is ongoing. An inquest into the matter will not be held until it is concluded.

Then, when traveling to the mountains in the Ford, they were caught on camera.

Sadly, the car tragically broke away from the A4085 on November 21, one day after they had been reported missing, near Tremadog, at Garreg.

According to North Wales Police Superintendent Owain Llewellyn, the crash seemed to be “a tragic accident.”

Vigils have been organized in Shrewsbury to honor the foursome, and tributes to the youngsters have poured in.

Harvey was characterized as “a unique and special person who touched so many people along the way” by his mother Crystal Owen.

She said: “There is never a time to lose a child but this feels so much more gut wrenching as he was literally thriving in life and had everything to live for.”

While Wilf’s girlfriend, Maddi Corfield, posted a tribute online, writing: “I love you so much, I’m going to miss you forever.

“The sweetest and most loving boy I’ve ever known. I hope you know how much I love you, gorgeous.”

“At this time, speculation is unhelpful and compassion will achieve more than media curiosity.

“I offer the families of Wilf, Jevon, Hugo and Harvey my sincerest condolences.”

A huge search was launched for the boys when they failed to return home to Shropshire from the overnight trip.

Witnesses saw the pals “laughing and joking” as they bought supplies for the camping expedition from a shop in Harlech.
