SAVANNAH, Mo. (AP) - Two teenage boys have died after falling through the ice on a farm pond in northwest Missouri.

The Missouri State Highway Patrol says Andre D. Lance and Tyler S. Brandt drowned Saturday afternoon after thin ice gave way on the private pond nine miles northwest of the Andrew County town of Savannah.

After the 17-year-old Savannah boys were reported missing Saturday night, the vehicle they had been driving was found parked near the pond. Deputies found a hole in the ice about 40 feet from the bank and requested help from the patrol.

With the help of a patrol rescue boat, the bodies of the teens were found. The patrol says the teens’ bodies were taken for autopsies.
