The discoveries mark the tragic end to a search for two missing workers who were inside the mill when it exploded and burst into flames on Friday night. The identities of the bodies have not been confirmed by the coroner, but workers Carl Charlie and Robert Luggi Jr. are both missing and presumed dead.

Another 19 workers were injured in the blast, including John Wiebe, who suffered second and third-degree burns when the structure combusted.
