NEW SEARCH FOR BOYS IN LAKE COMES UP EMPTY

Divers came up empty-handed Thursday in their renewed hunt for the remains of two teen-age boys presumed drowned when their rowboat vanished on Conesus Lake in 1991.

The discovery of human bones next to a dock Tuesday prompted a search of the murky, 60-foot-deep lake 30 miles south of Rochester. Pathologists were trying to determine if the bones were the remains of Joel Munson, 15, or Christopher Stockton, 16.

The boys' rowboat apparently capsized on the lake in rough waters. No sign of it was ever found, prompting speculation that the teens had run away or been abducted.

In 1995, one of Christopher's sneakers washed ashore, and the matching one was found two years later. Both contained bones.

A lakeside resident said he found the latest remains Tuesday caught on a dock at the lake's south tip after several days of blustery weather.
