Divers are resuming their search Sunday morning for 63-year-old Kathy Legard, 13-year-old Jake Legard and 4-year-old Payten Yoder.
Sanders County Sheriff Jay Rummell says search and rescue teams have tried to reach the submerged vehicle since Friday night, when a 9-1-1 caller saw the car sink into the river about 13 miles west of Plains, off River Road.
Fast-moving, muddy water is making the search difficult, according to the sheriff, who offered his prayers of support for the families.
The Missoulian will continue to provide updates on the search effort, as they are available.
On Sunday, divers retrieved the bodies of 63-year-old Kathy Legard, 13-year-old Jake Legard and 4-year-old Payten Yoder. The car apparently went out of the family’s driveway, across River Road and down a 15-foot embankment into the river.
