GLENCOE, Ky. – Police are intestigating if the five bodies — including three children — found in a car that was submerged in a creek in rural northern Kentucky, were the same people reported missing in Hamilton, Ohio on Jan. 10.
"Our investigation section has been in contact with authorities in Kentucky...but identification has not been made," Officer Dave Crawford, Hamilton Police spokesman told the Cincinnati Enquirer.
The Hamilton Police missing person’s report states that the missing people are: Kendra Johnson, 26; her husband, Glenn, 34, their son Sevin, 5, and two daughters, 2-year-old McKinzye and 18-month-old Mya.
The car was found in Eagle Creek near Kentucky 467 in Gallatin County, about 30 miles southwest of Cincinnati along the Ohio River. State police were called to the scene by local police at 4:30 p.m. EST on Thursday.
Police do not think foul play was involved in the deaths.
Authorities removed the car from the creek and found the bodies of two adults and three children inside. State police said the bodies had not been identified Thursday night.
State police said they don't suspect any foul play in the deaths.
The car had Indiana license plates, Gallatin County acting Coroner Denny French said, but declined further comment.
Autopsies are scheduled for Friday.
The car was found near a sharp curve on the narrow, rural road, Kentucky State Police Trooper Chip Perry said.
Little of the car was visible and a passer-by spotted it and alerted local authorities, he said.
