OKLAHOMA CITY - Another body is pulled from the Oklahoma River.

The body found in almost the exact same spot where crews recovered a body yesterday.

That may not be coincidence.

"It looks like what's happening is the water is spilling over and it's creating swirling water right there," OKC Fire's Brian Stanaland said.

Three kids, 4-year-old Destiny, 3-year-old Tera, and 6-month-old Alexis Shrum have all been missing in the river since last week.

One of the three was recovered Wednesday, although authorities have not confirmed the identity.

Standing on the bottom of a capsized boat, rescue crews searched for other bodies in the same spot but came up empty.

At the same time, along the Deep Fork, fire crews and volunteers continue searching that creek looking for Yolanda Santos.

She is also missing since being washed away last week.

Fire crews plan to keep searching both sites until all the bodies have been found.

"You know, unfortunately we're in a recovery and it's a terrible tragic incident," Stanaland said. "We do want to do the best to bring these bodies back to their loved ones."
