WILMINGTON, Ill. -- Authorities say they have recovered the body of a 12-year-old boy who went missing in the Kankakee River over the Memorial Day weekend.

The body of the boy's 13-year-old sister, Abigail Arroyo, was found Monday. The boy was identified as Eder Arroyo.

The siblings went into the river near a dam at about 6:30 p.m. Monday. They got caught in the turbulent water at the dam.

Two good Samaritans, from Blue Island, tried to rescue them but were not able to reach the children.

Police will hold a news conference Wednesday afternoon with the latest details.
