(UNDATED) - A young rockclimber from Indiana is dead after falling in Eastern Kentucky.

Police say 18-year-old Laura Fletcher of Brownsburg -- and her friend -- 18-year-old Benjamin Strohmeier of Hebron, Ky. fell while rock climbing in the Red River Gorge.

Their bodies were found at the bottom of a rock cliff in the Torrent Falls area late Tuesday by a friend who had not heard from them since Monday morning.

The coroner says it's unclear what happened to the pair. Police are investigating, but they don't suspect foul play.
