CENTRAL ISLIP, N.Y. (AP) - Officials say two young siblings reported missing on New York's Long Island have died after they were pulled from a neighbor's pool.
Suffolk County police say a 911 call came in at about 3:30 p.m. Sunday to report that a 5-year-old boy and a 7-year-old girl went missing from a home in Central Islip.
