ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - New Mexico State Police confirm searchers looking for two missing teens have found two bodies in Quemado Lake.
As of now, however, there is no confirmation the bodies recovered by State Police divers are Noah Hooper of Colorado and Seth Stephenson of Chaparral in Dona Ana County. Confirmation of the identities will be made by the Office of the Medial Investigator, a State Police spokesman said.
The first body was recovered about 2:15 p.m. from the west end of the lake in northern Catron County. The second body was found a short time later.
Hooper, 14, and Stephenson, 16, had been helping with summer programs at a religious camp for deaf children and others near Reserve. They were last seen Sunday "island hopping" in the lake.
Public access to the lake and the nearby woods has been closed during the search.
