2 brothers from Louisiana die in Alabama surf

ORANGE BEACH, Ala. (AP) – Authorities say they have found the bodies of two brothers from Louisiana who were lost in the surf on the Alabama coast.

Police say the bodies of a 12-year-old boy and his 19-year-old brother were both located Saturday after a search.

They apparently drowned.

The two went under in a resort area in Orange Beach, Alabama.

Police haven’t released the names of either young man.

They say the search began Friday night.

Police say the brothers were visiting the coast with relatives, and both went in Gulf waters.

One or both of the brothers got into trouble in the surf, and witnesses saw both go under without resurfacing before dark Friday.
