Rescue crews recovered 29 bodies Friday from a raging, rain-fed river that swept a bus carrying members of an evangelical church off a bridge in San Salvador.

Crews were still looking for at least one other person believed aboard the bus when it was carried away by the river in El Salvador's capital Thursday night, said Raul Murillo, spokesman for the national civil protection service.

Crews found 10 of the bodies as far as 37 miles north of the capital, Murillo said. The other 19 bodies were found closer to the accident site.

The passengers were members of a local evangelical church.
