Two bodies have been found at Lake Manawa in Council Bluffs, Iowa as authorities work to discover whether they are those of a mother and son missing from Plattsmouth, Nebraska for a week.
A spokesman for the FBI reports that the bodies of a woman and a boy were discovered Sunday evening.
Authorities have searched, but so far have not been able to find 41-year-old Charlotte Schilling and her 10-year-old son, Owen. Authorities say the bodies discovered in a remote area at the lake near the Missouri River have decomposed so badly that autopsies have been ordered to identify them. Officials will not disclose how the two died.
Schilling’s care was found abandoned at the lake on the 11th of May. The police chief in Plattsmouth has indicated investigators have uncovered no evidence of foul play.
