YACHATS, Ore. (AP) — The Oregon State Police says two teenage boys died after waves swept them off a rocky outcropping and into the ocean.

Lt. Gregg Hastings says the body of 18-year-old Connor Gregory Ausland was found and that authorities have yet to find 17-year-old Jack Harnsongkram. Both were from Eugene and were students at South Eugene High School.

Hastings says the two were with a group of other teens and adults visiting the area near Smelt Sands State Park in Lincoln County when they were swept away Saturday afternoon.

KGW-TV reports a third teen also was knocked into the surf by waves but managed to get out safely.

Police believe Ausland and Harnsongkram drowned.
