DOSWELL, Va. - Virginia state police say they have found the body of the third person aboard a hot air balloon that drifted into a power line, burst into flames and fell into a heavily wooded area about 25 miles north of Richmond on Friday.

State police spokeswoman Corinne Geller says the searchers found the body at 11 a.m. Sunday. The bodies of two other people had previously been found.

Police have not released the victims' names, but family members and the University of Richmond said associate head coach Ginny Doyle and director of basketball operations Natalie Lewis were passengers. Veteran hot air balloon pilot Daniel T. Kirk was at the controls, according to his father.
