MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — The body of a 3-year-old boy was recovered Sunday in the search for four children allegedly thrown from a coastal bridge by their father, authorities said.

The body was found near shore by a search team, a day after a duck hunter found the body of the boy's infant brother about five miles west of the bridge in a marshy area, Mobile County Sheriff Sam Cochran said.

The 3-year-old's body was spotted near shore in Bayou La Fourche Bay, about three miles west of where the infant was found, authorities said.

Cochran said the remaining two bodies could be in the same area or shifted by current closer to the Alabama-Mississippi line.
