Searchers have had no luck in finding four men missing after an SUV crashed into the Ohio River over the weekend.

Sergeant John Nevels of the Henderson Police Department says five to six boat crews and divers have been working all day to find three brothers and their friend.

The four went missing after the SUV they were riding in drove off a boat ramp into the river.

Two women were found dead in the SUV, and one other woman made it to shore.

Nevels says the work has been difficult because of the river's large width. He says the crews will be equipped with better sonar Wednesday.

Searchers are also using dogs to scan both shorelines.

The four missing men are 26-year-old Michael Sanners, 23-year-old Travis Sanners, 21-year-old Stephen Parker, and 21-year-old Quillon Hughes. Parker is identified as a half-brother to the Sanners brothers.

The two confirmed dead are 32-year-old Korena Alvira, believed to have been the driver, and Diamond Raimey, also 32.
