LAWRENCE, Mass. (AP) _ Families say the bodies of two U.S. soldiers missing in Iraq for more than a year have been found.

The father of Army Sgt. Alex Jimenez of Lawrence says the military told him Thursday that the remains of his son were identified in Iraq. The stepfather of Pfc. Byron Fouty of Waterford, Mich., says that soldier's remains were also found there.

The Pentagon has made no official announcement. It usually does not release news publicly until 24 hours after families are notified.
