Leakesville, Miss.

Officials in Greene County have found the bodies of 6-year-old twin boys who fell into Chickasawhay River Saturday.

Greene County Emergency Manager Trent Robertson told WLOX-TV in Biloxi that one of the boys was found late Sunday night and the other around 5:30 a.m. Monday.

The names of the boys were not immediately released and officials believe the boys died from drowning.

The brothers disappeared Saturday in the Chickasawhay River, on the southern part of Greene County.

Robertson says a friend of the family saw the two boys stepping into a deep part of the river and being swept away by the current.
