UPDATE: 3rd body recovered from Mississippi River in Winona

Posted: Updated:

WINONA, Minn. (FOX 47/AP) -- The Winona County Sheriff's Department has recovered the body of one of two men believed to have drowned along with two others in the Mississippi River.

The department has not identified the body. A search team from Carver County helped with the search effort on Monday.

Sheriff David Brand said crews are using an underwater robotic device to search for the two men who were likely in the SUV that plunged into the Mississippi early Sunday in downtown Winona.

According to the sheriff's office, Andrew Kingsbury, 29, of St. Charles, and Blake Overland, 28, of Stewartville, were seen leaving a tavern with 29-year-old Mathew Erickson, of Chatfield, and 36-year-old Christina Lee Hauser, of Winona.

Erickson and Hauser's bodies were found in the vehicle after it was pulled from the water Sunday. KAGE radio reports one of the vehicle's back windows had been broken out, causing authorities to believe both men may have exited the vehicle while underwater.
