Anthony and Margaret Allen, parents of Charles and Robert, have paid tribute to the brothers.

Our sons were happy, kind, intelligent, loving brothers and we are in a state of shock at what has happened. We are living a nightmare that you would never want to happen to anyone. We are praying Robert is located so that we can say goodbye to our sons together.
