A fourth body has been recovered from the Mississippi River in Winona Sunday, following an SUV crash into the river Jan. 5, according to WXOW. 

According to the report, crews found the body of 29-year-old Andrew Kingsbury of La Crosse, Wis., around 3:45 p.m. According to Winona County Sheriff Dave Brand, his body was located by using robot and sonar.

Kingsbury's body was found in about 10 feet of water, at the bottom of the river, near the Highway 43 bridge.
This comes after the body of 28-year-old Blake Overland, of Stewartville, was recovered Jan. 6, and the bodies of the driver, 36-year-old Christina Lee Hauser, and one passenger, 30-year-old Mathew Erickson, were found inside the vehicle on Jan. 5.

At this point, additional details have not been released.
