The Medical Examiner's office has still not identified the bodies of two children found in Bird Creek and the Verdigris River this week. 

Tulsa Police said they are all but certain these bodies are missing Miracle and Tony Crook, who were last seen heading down toward this creek last week.

But they'll wait for the Medical Examiner's office to officially confirm their identities.

The Oklahoma Task Force One discovered the bodies this week.

Oklahoma Task Force One is an elite group of firefighters trained in search and rescue. 

They used boats, drones, and K-9s to search Mingo Creek and Bird Creek.

They found a little boy's body 80 miles upstream from where searchers found a little girl the night before.

Captain Sivadon with the task force said it was a challenging search because Bird Creek is filled with trees, root balls, and brush piles.

Prosecutors are waiting on all the reports to figure out who may be responsible for what happened to the children, but right now police do have their mother in custody for child endangerment.
