The bodies of three Scott County residents, who had been reported missing Friday, have been found after their vehicle was discovered in a creek.

County Coroner Joe C. Bradford says the victims
have been identified as 40-year-old Vincent Hunt; his sister,46-year-old Rose Hunt; and 34-year-old Banji Lee, all of Forest.

Authorities say it appears their vehicle ran off the road and plunged into the Hontokalo Creek just outside of Forest. The vehicle was found Monday.

Bradford says Lee had been ejected from the vehicle. An autopsy completed Tuesday revealed that all three drowned.

An investigation into the cause of the crash is ongoing.
