The four young men are reportedly from the Shrewsbury area and are experienced campers who had equipment with them.
“I am frantic with worry,” Harvey’s mother wrote on Facebook in a desperate appeal for information online.
“One of these boys is my son Harvey, please please please share and tag anyone in Wales or get in touch with any information you may have.”
