The bodies of two teenagers who were washed up over the weekend while swimming in a southern Indiana river have been recovered, authorities said Monday.

State conservation officers found the bodies of the 16-year-old boys Sunday in the East Fork of the White River in Martin County, just west of the Lawrence county line, said Cpl. Joe Haywood of the Indiana Department of Natural Resources' law enforcement division.

The teens went missing Saturday night while swimming in an area of ​​the river about 25 miles (40.2 km) southwest of Bloomington. Witnesses said the children were last seen being carried downstream by the river's current and then submerged at the surface of the water.

Conservation officers called the scene around 6:30 p.m. Saturday and began searches that included the use of airboats, underwater sonar, trawling equipment, and divers.

One of the boys' bodies was found Sunday a few hundred yards downstream from where the teens were last seen, and the other body was found about a mile downstream, Haywood said.

Autopsies were planned earlier this week and the children's deaths remain under investigation, he said.
