Authorities are investigating after two bodies were found in the woods near a Kansas City area lake.

KMBC-TV reports that police aren't identifying the people found Wednesday afternoon at Longview Lake or said how they died. But relatives and friends of 29-year-old Michael Brewer and 25-year-old Keith Wasmer gathered at the lake because they suspect the bodies were those of the missing men.

The friends disappeared after going to the Longview Marina on Aug. 6 to meet someone. Wasmer's mother, Shannon Wasmer, says her "mom-stinct is not doing so well right now." Her son has four children, the youngest just 1-month-old.

Michael Brewer's father, Jeff Brewer, says there will at least be "some sort of closure" if the bodies are identified as those of the two friends.
