Authorities say the bodies of two adults and a child have been found after their pontoon boat capsized in Mississippi during a duck-hunting trip.
Authorities told The Advocate of Baton Rouge the bodies were recovered Sunday afternoon on the Buffalo River in Wilkinson County, Mississippi, about an hour's drive north from Baton Rouge, Louisiana's capital city.
Sheriff Austin Daniel in neighboring West Feliciana Parish, Louisiana, says first responders from his area joined the search after the three were reported missing early Sunday. Daniel told the newspaper that the pontoon boat was being used as a duck blind when it capsized, trapping the victims underneath.
Though the dead were not immediately identified, Daniel says they were all from his area.
