The bodies of two teenage boys who were swept away 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.
