TALLULAH - Louisiana State Police say the bodies of two men and a woman missing since Jan. 7 have been found in the Tensas River west of Tallulah.

Police spokeswoman Julie Lewis says 49-year-old Brady Brown and 52-year-old Ella Williams, both of Beaumont, Texas, and Brown's 68-year-old uncle, Eddie Cobb Jr., apparently drowned after their 2006 Dodge Stratus ran off the road.

They were heading toward Shreveport, 150 miles west of Tallulah, after a funeral in Columbia, S.C. After more than a week and no one had heard from them, Columbia police asked authorities across the Southeast to help in the search.

Lewis says a police spotter looking for the car by plane saw a bumper floating in the river Tuesday. Divers found the car Wednesday.
