Williamsburg, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities say three bodies were found inside a car submerged in a Whitley County creek.

According to WKYT-TV, 39-year-old Shannon L. Kier, his wife, 29-year-old Susan Kay Kier, and their son, 2-year-old Lee Isaac Patrick Kier were pronounced dead around 10:30 Saturday morning.

Whitley County Coroner Andy Croley said the bodies were found in the flooded Jellico Creek, which flows into the Cumberland River.

Officials say deputies were searching for the family from Jacksboro, Tenn., after a relative called police Friday night and reported them missing.

Authorities say a relative discovered the vehicle after the creek waters receded.
