The Coast Guard and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency have confirmed the bodies recovered to be Adam Clark, a 17-year-old Mobile, Alabama resident, and Robert Thomas, a 50-year-old Pickens, Mississippi resident.

The Coast Guard and Alabama Law Enforcement Agency continue to search for the one remaining missing person.
