QUEMADO, N.M. (AP) -- Authorities say two bodies pulled from a lake in western New Mexico have been identified as the two teenage boys missing since last weekend.

KOB-TV reported Friday that the Office of the Medical Investigator confirmed the bodies' identities.

Authorities say 16-year-old Seth Stephenson and 15-year-old Noah Hooper were helping a group from the Apache Creek Deaf and Mute Camp when they went missing Sunday at the deep end of Quemado Lake.

The Longmont Times-Call reports Noah was from Longmont, Colo.

New Mexico State Police divers found the bodies Wednesday.

The bodies reportedly were stuck in mud below the surface of the water.

The teens were last seen jumping from island to island in the deeper end of the lake.

Medical investigators are trying to determine what caused the deaths.
