LOWER BURRELL, Pa. (AP) – Officials say two bodies pulled from a western Pennsylvania river are presumed to be those of a father and son who never returned from a fishing trip on Sunday.

Divers found the bodies about 8 a.m. Monday in the Allegheny River, about 20 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.

They had begun searching on Monday for 62-year-old Steven Sieminski and his 30-year-old son, Justin. Lower Burrell police say they went fishing around 9:30 p.m. Sunday and didn’t return home.

The Sieminskis’ red Chevrolet Blazer was found parked near the spot where some of their fishing equipment was discovered along the shoreline.

Lower Burrell Police Chief Tim Weitzel has said there’s no sign of suspicious activity. The stretch of river where the men were fishing is known for swift currents.
