Search continues for Illinois woman killed in Tupelo crash

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) -

A search continues for an Illinois woman who's missing after a sport utility vehicle crashed in Mississippi.
           
Authorities found the bodies of one woman and two men Tuesday. They are searching for the fourth person who was traveling with the group that left last Friday, headed to Florida.
           
A fisherman found a blue Chevrolet SUV in a creek Tuesday in Tupelo, under an Interstate 22 bridge.
           
Lee County Coroner Carolyn Green says DNA tests are being done to confirm the woman who died was 25-year-old Heather Uhren of Streator, Illinois.
           
Green initially said the body was that of 24-year-old Amber Smith of Streator. Smith is now the missing woman being sought.
           
Green says the two women have similar facial features, and Uhren's family provided information about items she was wearing.
