READ MORE:

CHARLOTTE, NC (AP) -- Authorities have reportedly found a vehicle used by two missing Catawba County, NC, teenagers under a highway bridge in South Carolina with two bodies inside.

The Charlotte Observer reports that the vehicle was found in marshy water under an Interstate 20 bridge in Kershaw County, SC, around 4:30 p.m. Sunday.

Catawba County Sheriff Coy Reid told the newspaper the vehicle's occupants "ran off the bridge or just in front of the bridge." He said the bodies hadn't been positively identified, but that the license plate matched that of the missing car.

Friends of 18-year-old Jake Ziegler and 17-year-old Ray Pierce had told officials the two were heading for Myrtle Beach, SC, around 1:30 a.m. on Oct 22.
