Overnight PIX11 learned someone found the bodies of four males at the Central Islip Recreational Center Park off Clayton Street.

Investigators with the Suffolk County police confirmed they were all found with "significant trauma" to their bodies.

Police have not revealed the victims' identities, ages, or other circumstances surrounding the grisly scene.

By daybreak, a family arrived at the park, telling PIX11 a 16-year-old member went missing on Tuesday and they fear he is among the dead.

The family says a missing person's report was never filed because police told them to wait 24 hours before filing.
