CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - Police said divers have found the bodies of two boys who disappeared while swimming in South Chickamauga Creek in Chattanooga.

The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the bodies were found Monday afternoon, the day after Kentory Ray and Thomas Ruffin, who are both 11 years old, disappeared beneath the murky water.

Chattanooga police said the two boys were part of a group of four that went to the creek on Sunday afternoon to play.

According to police and what the two survivors told a neighbor, the boys were horse-playing when Ray, who didn't know how to swim, slipped and went under the water. Thomas, who could swim, went after him.

When they didn't resurface, the other boys left to get help.
