They also said all signs point to the two bodies being Miracle and Tony Crook.

Late Tuesday night, May 26, Wagoner and Muskogee County Emergency Management recovered a child's body from the Verdigris River.

Officials said they are working closely with the agencies, including Tulsa police, to determine the victim's identity, since there is a possibility that this is related to the two children missing here in Tulsa.

Oklahoma Highway Patrol says around 7:40 p.m. on Tuesday night, a fisherman saw a body floating in the Arkansas River.
