OKMULGEE COUNTY, Oklahoma (KOCO) -- Investigators found seven bodies amid the search for two teenagers reported missing early Monday morning in eastern Oklahoma.
On Monday, an endangered missing advisory was issued for 14-year-old Ivy Webster and 16-year-old Brittany Brewer. The alert stated that authorities believed that the two were with 39-year-old Jesse McFadden.

The Okmulgee County Sheriff’s Office said in the news release that they learned no one from the family went to the ranch, and there hadn’t been any contact with them since Sunday.
Deputies also learned that another teenager, Brewer, was with them and was picked up during the early evening hours of Saturday.

Authorities said their last known location was in Henryetta.
The missing person advisory has since been canceled, the Oklahoma Highway Patrols aid.
