The search for two teenagers who went missing in Neshaminy Creek late Tuesday night was continuing Thursday, authorities said, a day after a variety of units searched the murky water for hours without finding the boys.

Bensalem Township public safety director Fred Harran said Thursday morning that marine units were concentrating their efforts Thursday between the Hulmeville Road bridge and the Delaware River, south of Neshaminy Falls, which is where the boys - Dan Tadrzynski, 18, and Perry Krewson, 19 - went missing while swimming around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Harran said Wednesday that the search efforts were being considered "search and recovery," not rescue, but he reiterated Thursday that the search would take place until Tadrzynski and Krewson were found.

"I'm hoping that we can recover these two young men as soon as possible to help their families in their time of need, so they can have some closure," he said.
