North Ogden police say two boys missing since Wednesday afternoon have been found chilly, but alive and well.

Det. Paul Rhoades said a police officer found the boys about 6:30 a.m. Thursday hiding behind a Walmart store in Harrisville, about a mile and a half distant from where they had last been seen.

Robert Quinton, 13, and 8-year-old Noa Johnson had been reported missing just after 10 p.m. Wednesday. They had last been heard from by their respective parents after school let out earlier in the day.

Rhoades said it appeared they had been behind the store overnight and were cold when found; both had been clad only in shorts and T-shirts.

"Quinton has been diagnosed with autism, however he has high level functioning. Both juveniles have a history of running away together, and no foul play is suspected at this time," Rhoades said.
