COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Investigators trying to find two brothers last seen at least six years ago have released portraits showing what they might look like today.
A former Colorado couple adopted Edward and Austin Bryant in 2000. They weren’t reported missing until this year, when acquaintances told investigators they heard conflicting stories from the adoptive parents about why the boys were no longer with them.
The portraits were released Monday. They show Austin at age 15 and Edward at 18.

The parents, Edward and Linda Bryant, told investigators the boys ran away by 2003. The parents have been charged in Colorado with collecting government payments for the boys’ care when the children weren’t in their household.
They were arrested in Texas, where they had moved. They haven’t been charged in the boys’ disappearance.
