Authorities identify body found after car overturns in water near West Alton

(KMOV) -- Rescue crews have recovered the body of a missing driver in West Alton.
 
Search crews fanned out across the area near Route 67 on the Missouri side of the Mississippi River.
           
The driver has been identified as 39-year-old Major Daniel from St. Louis.
 
A witness says Major lost control of his vehicle, ran off the road and landed in a body of water there. This happened around 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday.
 
The witness called 911 and several emergency responders including dive teams and the Missouri Water Patrol searched for Majors. About two hours later, patrolmen using sonar equipment found Major’s body just a few feet from his van.
 
Rescue crews did not find anyone else and do not believe there were other passengers in the van.
