LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) — Authorities in northern Idaho are waiting for water levels in the Lochsa River to drop before recovering the bodies of a woman and child likely still in a vehicle in the fast moving water.

Authorities tell the Lewiston Tribune (http://bit.ly/1n3ULXX) that search and rescue divers plan to visit the site near Lowell on Wednesday.

Idaho State Police Capt. Lonnie Richardson says the bodies of 22-year-old Talia Rushing of Boise and 2-year-old Layton Hallmark are probably in a Chrysler PT Cruiser.

Police say 29-year-old Boone Hallmark fell asleep while driving at 3 a.m. on July 2 on U.S. Highway 12, and the car went into the river.

Police say Hallmark tried to help the victims, but was washed out of the vehicle and survived.

Police are keeping watch over the vehicle.
