VICHY, Mo. (AP) _ A woman and two children were found dead in a farm pond, and authorities charged two teen-agers with murder and were attempting to find them.

The victims were identified as Susan Brouk, 36; her daughter, Adrian Brouk, 12; and her son, Kyle Brouk, 9. They were found dead Thursday in a pond about a half-mile from their home after relatives and friends reported they had been unseen since Saturday.

Authorities would not reveal how the three were believed to have been killed or give any other details.

Mark Anthony Christeson, 18, and Jesse Carter, 17, both of Vichy, were charged in warrants with three counts each of first-degree murder and one count each of armed criminal action, the patrol said.

They remained at large early today and were believed to be driving Ms. Brouk's tan 1984 Ford Bronco II, the patrol said.

Vichy is located in central Missouri, about 40 miles southeast of Jefferson City.
