Body found in vehicle in Columbia River identified

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A dive team on Wednesday found human remains inside a vehicle submerged in the Columbia River at the base of the Glenn Jackson Bridge between Oregon and Washington.

The body was recovered and on Thursday identified as 57-year-old Antonio Amaro-Lopez of Portland.

The discovery comes days after a car reportedly went off the Glenn Jackson Bridge during a winter storm.

There has been no confirmation that this is the same vehicle.

The break in the search came Wednesday afternoon by a private search crew that travels the country solving underwater mysteries.

They said the crew did two passes and found the upside-down car practically underneath the bridge.
