Police have identified two bodies found on the edge of the Everglades in Northwest Miami-Dade on Monday as a pair of teens who were reported missing just two days earlier.

Miami-Dade Police say 18-year-old Hector Tornado Miranda, of Doral, and 19-year-old Marcos Ernesto Pomares, of Miami, were found dead Monday in a wooded area in the 13300 block of Northwest 25th Street.

Miranda and Pomares had been reported missing on Saturday, police said. They were later found as part of a missing persons investigation.

Investigators said both bodies were found in shallow, marshy water.

The cause of death is unknown and is pending toxicology results from the Medical Examiner's Office.

Anyone with information is asked to call Miami-Dade CrimeStoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
