The search for two Lower Mainland teens presumed drowned at Nicola Lake, just outside Kamloops has come to a close after a private dive team recovered their bodies earlier today.

The families hired a private company from Idaho to conduct the search after an RCMP dive team failed to provide closure.

The two were reported missing on April 21 when they didn't report to family.

The private team used sonar equipment and found the boys within a day of arriving on scene after which the RCMP underwater recovery team went to work to retrieve the bodies.

B.C. Coroner's Service has confirmed the teens' identities as 17-year-old Austin Kurtis Kingsborough and Brendan Daniel Wilson, also 17 from Langley, B.C.

They were found at a depth of about 75 feet in Nicola Bay near the area a canoe, presumed theirs, was found.
