LEAKESVILLE, Miss. (AP) _ Officials in Greene County have found the bodies of 6-year-old twin boys who fell into Chickasawhay River on Saturday.
 
Greene County Emergency Manager Trent Robertson tells 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 have not yet been 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.
