Missing Franklin County children 13-year-old Erica Linsey and 11-year-old Scotty Warner have been found unhurt.
The two friends were last seen at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday playing outside near White Road south of St. Clair.
Sheriff Gary Toelke says the area where the kids went missing in a very remote location close to the Meramec River. Just before 10:00am Thursday, Warner was found and led searchers to his 13-year-old neighbor. Erica Linsey was found hiding under porch. Searchers are trying to coax her out. Reportedly, she had fought with her sister the night before.
Earlier, Sheriff Gary Toelke told KTRS News there was no reason to believe the two were runaways. There was concern about the safety of the area due to mine shafts, caves, and the Meramec river.
Initially, Toelke says there were initial indications the two used a cell phone to access the Internet just before midnight from the area where they were reported missing.
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — An overloaded ferry capsized after hitting rocks in a remote river in Malaysia's part of tropical Borneo island on Tuesday, leaving an unknown number of people missing, police said. Some survivors swam ashore, and a search was underway.
The vessel was believed to be carrying much more than its recommended limit of 74 passengers, said Bakar Sibau, a district police chief in Malaysia's Sarawak state.
Bakar said there appeared to be dozens of survivors, but he did not have exact numbers. Some people swam ashore, and police divers, fire department officers and villagers were searching for the missing passengers.
"We hope they will be OK," Bakar said of the missing.
The boat was packed because many people are heading to their home villages for a harvest festival holiday that Borneo's indigenous tribes will celebrate later this week, Bakar said.
Rom Kulleh, a political aide who flew in a helicopter over the river shortly after the accident, said he and his state legislator boss saw the overturned boat.
"We spotted some people being saved by villagers in smaller boats," Rom told the AP.
The accident occurred midway through a 130-kilometer (80-mile) journey that usually takes about three hours.
Rivers form the main transportation network for hundreds of thousands of people in sprawling Sarawak. Public concerns about safety, including the enforcement of rules for ferry capacity, have occasionally emerged, but major boat accidents in Sarawak are rare.
Borneo island is divided among three countries: Indonesian territory in the south, two Malaysian states in the north and tiny Brunei on the north coast.
The search continues for a man in the Mississippi River.
Police say two men were in a car that was parked near the Merchants Bridge in north St. Louis when it started to roll. The car traveled into the water, where one man was able to get out. Fishermen helped pull him from the water. The second man was last seen floating down the river face down.
Search boats are out looking for the man.

Anyone with information is asked to call St. Louis County Police at 314.889.2341, or call 911.
What began as a river rescue is now a recovery operation.
A small fishing boat capsized on the Mississippi River Saturday afternoon, dumping two men and a 10 year old boy into the wind torn water.
A towboat crew found the boy and pulled him to safety.
More than two dozen fire and rescue crews spent the day Sunday searching for the boy's step-father and another man, but both are still missing. Hartford Fire Assistant Chief Bill Owens says they searched in the water and along the banks from Hartford, Illinois south to the Chain of Rocks Bridge.
By Sunday afternoon Owens expressed little hope that the men would be found alive.
Owens says the boy was wearing a life jacket when he was pulled from the water. It's not known if the men were wearing theirs, since two life jackets have been found in the area.
Crews will resume searching Monday morning using sonar provided by the Illinois Conservation Department.
A passersby found the victim in the garage about 12:30 p.m. and called 9-1-1.
The victim was injured, but her condition is unknown.
Police would only say, her attacker was a man.
St. Mary's officials released a statement that said, "The safety of our patients, visitors and employees is a top priority. We are working closely with the Richmond Heights Police Department to investigate this unfortunate situation."
Anyone with information is asked to call the Richmond Heights Police Department at 314-645-3000.
