Authorities in Baltimore said that salvage crews have located the body of another construction worker who died when the Francis Scott Key Bridge collapsed last month. The body was found trapped in a construction vehicle at the bottom of Patapsco River. The bodies of two other workers remain missing.

"As we mourn the lives lost and continue the recovery operation, we recognize each missing individual is someone's beloved friend or family member," Col. Roland L. Butler, Jr., superintendent of the Maryland Department of State Police, said in a statement.

Six people were killed when a cargo ship lost control and struck the bridge, causing it to collapse into the river. The other three victims who died in the collapse were Alejandro Hernandez Fuentes, 35, Dorlian Ronial Castillo Cabrera, 26, and Maynor Yasir Suazo-Sandoval, 38.

Salvage crews continue the painstaking process of removing the debris from the water.

The FBI has opened up a criminal investigation into the collision. Officials are looking into whether the crew knew about potential problems before departing from the Port of Baltimore.
