Updated portraits of missing Colo. boys released

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 were reported missing this year when acquaintances told investigators the adoptive parents gave conflicting stories about why the boys were no longer with them.

The portraits were released Monday showing Austin at age 15 and Edward at 18.

Parents Edward and Linda Bryant told investigators the boys ran away by 2003.

The Bryants charged in Colorado with collecting government payments for the boys' care when the children weren't in their household but have not been charged in the boys' disappearance.

They were arrested in Texas, where they had moved.
