HENDERSON, AR - Searchers have found the bodies of two Missouri boaters missing in a lake in northern Arkansas.

Both boaters were from West Plains, but authorities have not released their names.  The two were reported missing late yesterday after their boat was found on the bank of Norfork Lake with the throttle still in the "on" position.

Efforts to locate them continued through the night.  The Missouri Water Patrol brought in sonar equipment to help in the search.
