Families Say Bodies Found are Those of Two Missing Boys

April 15, 2006 - Posted at 1:12 p.m. CST

MILWAUKEE (AP) _ Family members say the bodies found yesterday

in a Milwaukee park are those of two boys who disappeared last

month.

And the uncle of one of the boys says it doesn't appear there

was any foul play.

Eleven-year-old Purvis Parker and 12-year-old Quadrevion

Henning were last seen on the afternoon of

March 19th, when they asked Quadrevion's grandfather if they could

play basketball at the nearby park.

Late yesterday, after weeks of searching, their bodies were

discovered in the park lagoon.

Police say divers had waded through the lagoon before, but may

have missed the bodies because of the muddy bottom.

Autopsies are being performed today, and police have scheduled

an afternoon news conference.
