The Clay County Sheriff's Office is investigating the deaths of two young girls who died under mysterious circumstances.

The sisters, both under the age of five, were found at a home in a rural area, near Missouri Highway 92 and Cameron Road. The mother found her daughters outside of the home not breathing, deputies said.

The woman carried the girls to a neighbor's house to call 911 just after noon Wednesday. Responding medics pronounced them dead.

The girls showed no apparent physical injuries. Foul play is not suspected, and water and gunfire have been ruled out. 

The mother is cooperating with the investigation and it may be several days before a cause of death is established, authorities said.
