LEON JUNCTION, Texas (AP) - Authorities have recovered the bodies of an 11-year-old girl, her grandmother and great-grandmother after their mini-van was swept off a flooded Central Texas road.

Coryell County Sheriff Johnny Burks says the bodies of the relatives from Gatesville were found Wednesday as receding water revealed the vehicle swept away Sunday about 30 miles southwest of Waco.

Additionally, Wichita Falls police said Wednesday that a man whose body was found Sunday in floodwaters near the Wichita River has been identified as 44-year-old Brent Allen of Wichita Falls. He’d been reported missing from a nearby motel on May 25.

The number of storm-related deaths in Texas since Memorial Day weekend is now at 32.

Those found in the mini-van were: 11-year-old Holli Elizabeth Morgan; 63-year-old Lynn McLaughlin Grubb; and 84-year-old Bobbie Correne McLaughlin.
