WBRZ-TV in Baton Rouge reports that the bodies of 19-year-old Steward Spencer III and 12-year-old Joshua Spencer were found Friday night in Orange Beach.

Authorities with Orange Beach Police say the body of the 12-year-old was found around 6:40 a.m. on Saturday and the body of his 19-year-old brother was found shortly after.

The drownings occurred near the Perdido Pass area, Brown said. "At that point, they had only been in town a short time. We worked as long as we could but had to stop our visual searching at 12:30 a.m".

"The family arrived this afternoon in Orange Beach from Louisiana to vacation, and once they got settled they went down to the beach and of course, the boys went into the water, and apparently one was in distress, or both were in distress, and witnesses say they saw them go under and not surface", says Brown. "It was a visual recovery, just west of the jetty".

Brown said the OBPD had support from the Coast Guard, ALEA, Daphne Search and Rescue and the OB Fire Department in the search for the missing children.
