WINONA, -- Searchers on the Mississippi River have recovered the fourth body from an early January accident.

The body of Andrew Kingsbury, 29 of La Crosse, Wis., was taken from the Mississippi Sunday about 700 feet downstream from where the vehicle containing the four went into the river early Jan. 5.

Bodies of Christina Lee Hauser, 36, of Winona, and Matthew Patrick Erickson, 29, of Chatfield, still were in the front seats of the women's vehicle hours after it went into the river. The body of Blake Overland, 28, of Stewartville, was recovered a day later.

Searchers from Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin worked on the river with sonar and underwater cameras since soon after the accident was reported.
