Several bodies were found inside a passenger car at the bottom of a reservoir in Hiroshima Prefecture on Saturday, police said.

The car’s license number indicates the vehicle belongs to Masahiro Yamagami, a company employee from the town of Sera, about 7 km from Kyomaru Dam, they said.

Yamagami and three family members have been missing since June last year, and police believe the bodies are those of the family, they said.

Yamagami, who was 58 when he went missing, failed to show up at work on June 4 last year.
