Officials are confirming that the bodies of two men missing since March when a tugboat sank in the Mississippi River near New Orleans have been recovered.

NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports the apparent remains of Malon Dawsey and Karl Prince were found last Thursday when the tug was finally pulled out of the river between Chalmette and Algiers.

That's where it capsized while maneuvering barges, the crew on a passing vessel able to rescue the tug's captain.
