WINONA, Minn. (AP) — Family and friends of a La Crosse, Wis., man who’s presumed drowned have spent the past week on the banks of the Mississippi River as a volunteer search crew works to recover his body.

Chad Kingsbury is the brother of the missing man, 29-year-old Andrew Kingsbury. He tells WXOW-TV the search for his brother is heart wrenching. Kingsbury and others make sure the divers and search crew is fed. He says it’s a thank you to the volunteers that are looking for his brother.

The bodies of three others who were in an SUV when it crashed through a guardrail and landed in the river have been recovered. Two of the three were Kingsbury’s childhood friends.
