    Authorities plan to resume searching for two missing teenagers thought to have fallen through the ice into a northern New Jersey lake.

    Police received reports of screams for help coming from Budd Lake in Mount Olive Township around 6:20 p.m. Monday.

    Acting Morris County Prosecutor Fredric Knapp said two residents went out on a boat, but failed to find anyone.
     
    Knapp said the parents of two teenage boys were notified their children are missing.
     
    Rescuers broke through more than 100 feet of ice and a State Police helicopter illuminated the scene before the search was called off.
