On a very warm afternoon, there are people fishing and walking around the Susquehanna River, right near the Conowingo Dam. It's a place for people in Port Deposit to relax.
Now, they want to know more about two bodies found in this area. Maryland State Police describe them only as a female and male, both adult-sized.
Around 7:30 Wednesday morning, people working on the Dam flagged down troopers, after seeing a body in the river. Around 10 a.m., Department of Natural Resources officers found the body of a female.
While investigators continued to scour the area, they were contacted about another body found in the water shortly before 2 p.m. Boaters discovered the body of a man floating in the water, about three to four miles from the first location.
State police has not identified the races of the bodies, but anonymous sources in Port Deposit say they were both black. And with every body found, the family of Phylicia Barnes is on edge.
The 16-year-old from North Carolina disappeared on December 28, while staying with her sister in a Northwest Baltimore apartment. We talked to Barnes' parents, but they have not heard from investigators about the most recent finding.
