JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) – Authorities have found the bodies of two Jefferson City teenagers in the Moreau River.

Jefferson City police said the bodies of 18-year-old Jacob Foster and 17-year-old Dantonio McClain were found Thursday.

They were reported missing Wednesday after some of their belongings and a car believed to have been driven by one of the teens was found at the Algoa Road bridge, just upstream from the Missouri River.

Authorities say an investigation into the cause of the teenagers’ deaths is continuing.

An earlier news release said police and family members believe the teens may have jumped into the river.
