Abigail Williams and Liberty German, both 13, were last seen around 1pm Monday when they were dropped near the picturesque Monon High Bridge near the small city of Delphi, Indiana.
The family asked us to thank the communities around Delphi and the people here in Delphi for assisting in attempting to locate the two young children who were missing here earlier.
Delphi Police Chief Steve Mullins said the discovery of the bodies alongside the search for the girls had shocked the people living around the place.
IN authorities confirmed Wednesday that the two bodies found near a creek are those of two missing teenagers and their deaths are being investigated as homicides.
They were supposed to return to the same spot later in the day to be picked up. It is unclear who discovered the bodies, but they were discovered on Tuesday about half a mile from the Monon High Bridge.
'Mass Effect: Andromeda' to have meaningful sidequests, akin to The Witcher
They learned a lot of the complaints coming from Inquisition players and they're applying that knowledge to Andromeda . Mass Effect Andromeda is set to benefit from a revamped side quest system that will provide a major gameplay boost.
The girls were reported missing when they failed to show up to a meeting point after a hike.
Anna Williams, Abigail's mother, said: "I'm getting scared now".
Investigators didn't confirm if the bodies found on Tuesday were those of the missing teens, saying only that they believe foul play was suspected.
"All I want to do is have the girls get home safe".
Officers looked into issuing an Amber Alert, but were informed this incident does not meet the criteria.
A K-9 unit and a dive team were deployed to search for the teens.
