NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) - Lincoln County Sheriff Jerome Kramer says car that carried two teenagers into the rushing waters of the South Platte River has been recovered with two bodies inside.

Rescuers pulled the car from the river Tuesday morning after building a temporary road to allow an excavator to approach the car.

Kramer says dental records will be used to identify the bodies found in the car over the next few days.

Officials have said 17-year-old Alexis Wiezorek and 18-year-old Noah Ramos have been missing since May 18, when they drove into the river, which had washed out a road on the south side of North Platte.

The rushing waters of the river made it difficult for authorities to recover the car before this week.
