3 bodies found in car pulled from Missouri River

Posted: Updated:

SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say three bodies were found inside a car pulled from the Missouri River in Sioux City.

Police have not identified the bodies, but they are believed to be those of a missing Sioux City family.

The search began Monday afternoon after someone reported that a car had been driven off a road into the water near Larsen Park.

Dangerous water conditions hampered the search. On Saturday a diver battling a current in 20 feet of water found the car several hundred feet downstream from where it had gone in. The diver hooked the car to a winch so it could be brought to shore.
