SHINE, Wash. (AP) - The Washington Department of Transportation has found the missing car of the Hood Canal Bridge employee. The vehicle was found early Monday about 150 feet north of the bridge.

Acting Transportation Secretary Roger Millar told employees of the DOT about the discovery in an email Monday morning.

The vehicle is submerged in more than 300 feet of water and state officials are calling on a Seattle salvage company to help them recover the vehicle and the man who has been missing for a week. The timing of that recovery will depend on tides, currents and equipment needs.

Searchers used sonar to scan the bottom of Hood Canal over the weekend to search for the missing worker.
