WINONA, Minn. - The search for a missing family of four in Dresbach, Minn., intensified Tuesday as divers from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers were added to the hunt.

With previous search efforts since the family disappeared Saturday proving fruitless, the divers began investigating the Mississippi River near the Lock and Dam No. 7 to find any sign of their location, the Star Tribune, a Minneapolis newspaper, said.

"It's dangerous work," regional corps official Dan Krumholz said of the underwater explorers. "They're experienced. They know what the structure looks like under water. They know what they're doing."

St. Paul, Minn., resident Cha Kong Yang and his fiancee, See Her, disappeared Saturday along with Her's two children after their boat capsized in the area.

Refuge law enforcement officer Rob Hirschboeck told the Star-Tribune that the growing search efforts would soon find evidence of the family's situation.
