The boys are still missing. They still haven't figured out what has happened, no leads or reasons why they are gone.

Why can't they get as much coverage as a missing white child? Do they not matter?

I live in New Jersey. I am a mother and I am concerned about the boys. Why is there no consistent update on the progress of the investigation? I agree with Tia, if the two boys were white they'd be on the news all day everyday. All children matter regardless of their race.

I am a student at Athens Middle School and I had no idea that there were two missing boys. I thought they would put something like that on the news.

They actually have given a lot more coverage than they did with Alexis Patterson, the little girl who went missing 4 years ago. It's still not a much as they have done nationally like the Chandra Levys, the girl in Aruba or the girl from Utah but it has improved. I think the coverage is in response to the criticism they have received in the past about NOT covering these stories when a minority child is involved. For 2 1/2 weeks it was the lead story on EVERY local channel, EVERY night. They were even on the Today show a few times. It's just so sad though that they keep reporting it over and over and over with no new developments. They act like if they report too much they might jeapordize the case but in other instances, they interview everyone from the family to the friends, to people who used to the know the kids. My prayers are with the family and I hope these boys come home.

I think that anybody who is missing should have a search continued. I feel bad for these missing boys. I wish they would give constant updates instead of telling us things we already know. I hope the boys are found...alive, if there are any updates I hope they will be posted on here, being a student, it is tuff for me to be able to watch the news all the time, thank you for all comments, and I hope I can stay updated coming on here!

I heard this on the news this morning. I don't understand why they weren't found a LONG time ago if this lagoon is near them. Why was every inch of it not searched weeks ago?

Well from my understanding it was but they say that there is a possibility that they could have missed them because of all the garbage that's in the lagoon. It's very sad but honestly I hope to hear that it was an accident rather than someone hurt these boys. An uncle from one of the boys family talked this morning on the news and I feel the family is hurt but are comforted with the fact that they have found them.The're bodies were identified by the families. It has not been confirmed by the police but by the families that it is them.My prayers and heart goes out to them.

The boys bodies were found in a lagoon in a park. The medical examiner says there was no foul play and that the two drowned probably even before the parents filed them as missing.

There's been a lot of coverage here in WI. Not too sure about nationwide. THey have recieved just as much if not more covereage. I think th that the coverage that missing children cases get depends on how much the family can push the news media, as well as the circumstances behind the disappearance. It's not right that ANY missing child doesn't get the media's attention immediately!

I heard late Friday night the fate of these children... It's such a tragic ending. Ever since the boys went missing, they were deep in my heart and prayers... No one will ever know what happened that day at the creek... I know with the closure for the families there will still be pain . My prayers go out to the families of Dre and Purvis. Rest in peace.....

I heard that they think that one boy fell in. Since he couldn't swim,maybe the other went in after him. It is so sad. I think that the families will be consoled that the boys were not taken and worse things happen to them.

I understand that one boy may have fallen through the ice and the other tried to rescue him. There were many reports on these boys the police were following up on. They couldn't give any "up to date" reports, as there were none to give! After the ice melted and one of the bodies came to the surface, a person walking in the area reported it to the police.
I don't believe the search had anything to do with being either a white/black child...all leads led no where, period. I believe the police did everything they could to find the boys.
The feeling seems to be, that this isn't the ending we were hoping for, however, thankfully the boys weren't abducted and harmed in some unthinkable way! A sad situation. My sympathy to the boys families.
