UPDATE|Rescue Crews Believe They Have Located The Bodies Of Jacob & Jeremiah Sanders

Pray-21Authorities believe they have pinpointed the location of two men, missing since Wednesday in Alabama.

Jacob Sanders, the bass player for the band The Velcro Pygmies, and his brother Jeremiah went missing while fishing on the Tennessee River in Lauderdale County.

According to a post on The Velcro Pygmies Facebook page:
“At about 5pm Friday the K9 Unit signaled on a location in the river where they believe Jacob and Jeremiah to be.

They are in about 8 feet of water. The recovery mission has become increasingly challenging due to this location’s proximity to the dam. In order for the divers to reach them the TVA has to shut down the turbines in the dam.”

The post went on to thank everyone for their love and support.  The Velcro Pygmies are a popular band with a loyal following in the Rome area.

They played at The Brew house just last weekend.
