The bodies of two Blasdell brothers, reported missing in the Adirondacks, have been found in Tupper Lake, New York.

New York State Police identify the pair as 67-year-old Steven Sattler and 64-year-old Edward Sattler. Troopers say their bodies were found in Raquette Pond on Monday.

According to troopers, the brothers were reported missing when they didn't return to a camp during a snowmobiling trip near Tupper Lake over the weekend.

An autopsy has determined the cause of death for both men to be asphyxiation due to fresh water drowning.
