Bodies Of 2 Missing Teenage Girls Found In Utah Lake

The Utah County sheriff’s office has recovered the bodies of two teenage girls who went missing on Utah Lake last week. Search and rescue crews discovered 18-year-old Priscilla Bienkowski and 17-year-old Sophia Hernandez on Thursday after being reported missing May 6 by family members. A fisherman told authorities he found the body of one of the girls close to the shore of Lincoln Beach at 1:45 p.m. Sheriff Mike Smith says the second body was discovered about three hours later and less than a mile from where the first floating tube was discovered by deputies. Neither teen was wearing a life jacket.
