Searchers look for 4th victim of Mississippi River crash

Posted:

WINONA, MN (WKOW) -- A week after an SUV missed a turn and flew through a guardrail into the Mississippi River, a passenger believed to have been in the vehicle is still missing.

Responders recovered a male and female victim found submerged in the car last Sunday. Another victim was later found in the water about 75 feet from the crash site, near Winona.

WXOW-TV reports on Sunday, authorities continued their search for missing man Andrew Kingsbury, 29, of La Crosse. He's presumed to have drowned in the crash, but crews and volunteer searchers won't give up until they find him.

"It's heart wrenching," says Andrew's brother Chad Kingsbury. "It went just from just trying to see if he was still around and locate where he was at to this recovery effort."

Volunteers have been out all week helping authorities search. Crews have used cameras, sonar, cadaver dogs and boats but haven't turned up anything, so far.

"You know the goal is still the same, find him, bring him home, and without these volunteers we don't have a chance of that," says Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand.

Crews will be out again Monday.
