 Days after the bodies of two teenage friends were pulled from a New Mexico lake, a website has sprung up to help the family of a 16-year-old boy pay for his services and burial.

Seth Stephenson of Chaparral, N.M. was helping a group from the Apache Creek Deaf and Mute Camp when he and Noah Hooper of Longmont, Colo., disappeared last Sunday in the deep end of Quemado Lake.

New Mexico State Police divers found two bodies on Wednesday.

The Office of the Medical Investigator confirmed Friday that the bodies were those of Seth and Noah.

Friends have established the website to help Seth's family at http://bit.ly/seths16 .

Noah would have turned 15 last Monday.

His services are pending.

Medical investigators are still trying to determine what caused their deaths.
