What happened to the twelve stones set up by Joshua after crossing the Jordan (Joshua 4:9) ?

I can find no subsequent reference to them in the bible.
Is there any record of anyone having seen them?
Did they contain the entire 5 books of Moses or just a summary?

Joshua 4:9
English Standard Version Anglicised (ESVUK)
9 And Joshua set up twelve stones in the midst of the Jordan, in the place where the feet of the priests bearing the ark of the covenant had stood; and they are there to this day.

Well, I've never seen the River Jordan myself! Perhaps they were washed away in a flood some time ago...

They were put there for people to see.  I would like to know if there is any evidence of anyone subsequent to Joshua ever seeing them.
