Mystery mounted on Grand Bahama over the weekend as police continued to investigate the disappearance of two young men authorities believe were together just before they went missing.

According to authorities, Angela Cooper, 41, of #4 Trumpeter Drive in Freeport came to the island's Central Police Station last Thursday night reporting that her son left home in a green mini van on August 15 and she had not seen or heard from him since.
