The Georgia Bureau of Investigation plans autopsies on the bodies of two men who went missing after a Jan. 2 fishing trip.

CBS Atlanta reports that autopsies on Mason Cox and David Wood are set for today.

Police divers found their bodies in Lake Lanier Friday night.

Dawson County sheriff’s Major Tony Wooten said there were no initial signs of trauma.

WSB-TV reports that hundreds of mourners packed Dawsonville’s North Georgia Church on Sunday to remember the 20-year-old men. Friends described the two as adventurous and full of life.

Many people in the tight-knit community are struggling to understand what could have happened to the athletic friends who grew up on the lake.

So sad

They had been missing for days...this is not the ending we wanted to see.

Kind of perplexing

Can't figure out if they suspect these two attacked each other or someone else attacked both of them. Hmm....
