The body of a man missing since an interstate bridge collapsed into the Mississippi River was recovered early Sunday, bringing the confirmed death toll to 12, authorities said.

The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identified the remains as Scott Sathers, 30, of Maple Grove.

Sathers worked in enrollment services at Capella University and was on his way home from work, using his usual route, when the Interstate 35W bridge crumpled amid evening rush hour traffic on Aug. 1.

Divers continued to search for the last person on the list of missing, Greg Jolstad, 45, of Mora.

A vehicle also was pulled from the rubble on Sunday. Bad weather on Saturday had hampered recovery efforts at the site.
