The search for two missing hikers in Washington state turned into a recovery effort after the men fell into Eagle Falls on Saturday and did not resurface, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said.

“SAR and Divers are continuing their search this morning for the two missing subjects at Eagle Falls in Index. This has turned into a recovery effort,” the Sheriff’s Office posted on X, formerly Twitter, on Sunday morning.

Just after 12 p.m., the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office reported that two male bodies had been recovered. However, it has not been determined if these bodies belong to the two missing hikers as investigators will be working with the Medical Examiner’s Office to determine their identities.

The Sheriff’s Office posted on social media that they received a call around 4:15 p.m. on Saturday for reports of two men who fell into the falls and vanished.
