Two 13-year-old boys stole a BMW and went on a 670-mile road trip across four states before police caught them. Cole Johnson stole his mother’s BMW and her credit card on Friday night before picking up his friend Raheem Harris and driving away from Columbus, Ohio.

Police found the pair on Monday night while they were sleeping in the car down an alley in Kansas City, Missouri.

Catherine Johnson, Cole’s mother, reported the boys missing on Saturday.

According to the Columbus Dispatch, Cole was hoping to reach California to pursue his skateboarding dream.

However, Catherine Johnson blocked her credit card so the boys could not get gas.

Before the credit card was blocked, Cole and Raheem filled up the BMW with gas in St. Louis on Saturday night.

On Monday morning, the vehicle in the Kansas City alley was reported to police for blocking the street. A responding officer realized that these were the two boys reported missing from Ohio.

According to the police report, Columbus police contacted Kansas City authorities after the boys posted on Facebook that they were stranded there, ABC reported.

The teenagers appeared relieved to have been found, Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp told ABC.

Police took the boys into custody and seized the vehicle. Catherine Johnson flew to Missouri that day to drive the boys back home.

Kansas City authorities said that no charges were likely to be brought against the boys. 

Kansas City police Capt. Steve Young told ABC that the boys had been lucky.

To take off cross-country at that age in a very nice car [...] kids that age and park in an alley in a major city is probably not a good idea, it could’ve ended a lot differently.

Last month, police picked up Cole Johnson a few miles from his home for joyriding. He was charged with driving without a license and lying to a police officer, according to the Columbus Dispatch.
