Zanesville, Ohio (AP) -- Police in eastern Ohio say foul play is not suspected in the deaths of two missing men whose bodies have been found in their car in a river.

Zanesville police Capt. Mike Baker says the bodies of 29-year-old Ben Davis and his friend, Ryan Hickey, were recovered from the Muskingum River around 11:30 Monday night.

Their vehicle was discovered in the water under a bridge in Zanesville, 52 miles east of Columbus.

Davis and Hickey had last been seen leaving a nightclub in Zanesville early last Wednesday.

Both lived in Alexandria, about 30 miles away.

Baker would not speculate on how the car wound up in the river and said the investigation was continuing.

The Muskingum County coroner's office said autopsies would be done Tuesday.
