Car Keys Lost In/On West River

While tubing Monday 6/16, discovered their absence about halfway between the Dummerston Covered bridge and the remnants of the old railroad bridge (near the Irving station on Route 30).  2 car keys (for upstream and downstream cars) were double-bagged together inside 2 ziplok bags.  

If you're swimming or kayaking in this area or downstream and see something floating (or underwater) please grab them and reply to this article...replacement keys are expensive these days, so waterlogged or not, there'll be a reward!  Don't divulge details of exactly what you found in your reply, though, save that for private followup for identification.
