SISSETON, SD -
Divers over the weekend recovered the bodies of three women who died in a crash in a slough in northeast South Dakota's Roberts County.
The South Dakota Highway Patrol says 47-year-old Alberta Harwood and 54-year-old Exzilda Seaboy, both of Sisseton, and 65-year-old Cleone Pewamo of Sioux Falls had been missing for nearly a week.
Officials say Harwood was behind the wheel of the vehicle on Oct. 30 when it went off a county road and into water that was 10 to 13 feet deep near Claire City.
The scene wasn't noticed until Saturday when someone saw Pewamo's body in the water. The next day, divers found the car and two other bodies.
