KEARNEY, Mo. (AP) _ Two young sisters have been found dead in a rural area northeast of Kansas City, Missouri.

Clay County sheriff’s Capt. Will Akin said the girls were found outside their home just after noon Wednesday by their mother and were not breathing. Both girls were under 5-years old.

Akin said foul play is not suspected and neither water nor firearms appear to have been involved, but the deaths are under investigation.

The incident was reported near the intersection of a rural road and Missouri 92 east of Kearney. The mother ran to a neighbor’s house and the neighbor called 911.
