PORT GIBSON, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi authorities are searching for two brothers who were reported missing more than a week ago after they went fishing on the Mississippi River.

WAPT-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1MtQF9C ) that 29-year-old Darrel Wilson and 26-year-old Joshua Wilson called relatives on March 9 and said they were returning home after catching about 300 pounds of fish. Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis said the relatives reported them missing several hours later.

The Clarion-Ledger reported that items belonging to the brothers were found washed up on an island in the river.

The Mississippi Highway Patrol and the state Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks also have joined the search in Claiborne County.
