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?

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.

A rabbi I spoke to says they are on this map (building with 12 stones)
