3 Missing Boys

3 boys are now missing as of yesterday, and they have still not been found. The boys are Tom Sawyer, Joe Harper, and Huckleberry Finn. They are all about twelve years old with brown hair. Sheriff's believe that they drowned in the Mississippi river late last night. Some of their classmates think they are playing a joke and having fun without them. The whole town is worried about these loving and caring boys and hope they are found soon. If you would like to help the cause, join the search party going out at 4 pm tonight, and keep these young boys in your prayers.
