Bodies Of Two GA Toddlers Found

New Media Producer: Kerry Corum

UPDATE: Georgia officials hope for answers from autopsies on the bodies of two toddlers found in a sanitation pond. A spokesman for the state's Bureau of Investigation says are no outward signs of trauma and no initial reason to believe there was foul play. He says the lab tests will likely be conducted Tuesday.

Jonah Payne, three, and his two-year-old sister, Nicole, had been reported missing by their Mother on Saturday. Searchers finally found the bodies in the algae-covered pond Monday.

Local police say the children had gotten out of the house earlier Saturday, only to be returned by a neighbor.

Previously: Authorities in Georgia have halted the search for two missing children in Warren County. Three-year-old Nicole Kain and her two-year-old brother Jonah's mother is now being questioned.

The search started Saturday, when the mother called police and said the children were missing. The toddlers were last seen over the weekend, at their home about 100 miles east of Atlanta. Helicopters searched from overhead, and boaters checked ponds, but investigators say so far, there are no signs of the children and no evidence of an abduction.

Temperatures in that area dipped into the 30s Saturday night, when the children were reported missing by their mother.
