Divers search again for 4th victim of Sunday's crash in Winona

WINONA, Minn. (KXLT) --  Deputies and divers searched again Friday for the fourth victim of Sunday's SUV crash in the Mississippi off Winona.

The family of Andrew Kingsbury gathered Friday afternoon as rescue crews used chain saws to cut holes into the ice-covered Mississippi River searching for him.

It's been six days since the search started.  Andrew's brother, Chad Kingsbury, said the community is giving his family strength during this difficult time.

"Right now, it's just more of a goal to find Andy and bring closure to all of the families," Kingsbury said.

Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand said if searchers don't find Kingsbury soon, they'll have to re-evaluate their search efforts.

Kingsbury of La Crosse was in an SUV that crashed into the Mississippi River early Sunday morning.

Matthew Erickson of Chatfield and Christina Lee Hauser of Winona were found dead inside the vehicle on Sunday. One day later crews recovered the body of Blake Overland of Stewartville.

His funeral is Saturday at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Lanesboro.
