Dive teams from Calaveras and Tuolumne County recovered a third body from New Melones Lake last evening. FBI spokesperson Nick Rossi says the third victim was located beneath the Parrotts Ferry Bridge at about 5:00 pm.

Sunday, two bodies were pulled from the water beneath the Stevenot Bridge. Rossi says autopsies have been scheduled for today.

Rossi says the teams will return to the Parrotts Ferry Bridge this morning. The search is part of an FBI investigation of organized crime.
