UPDATE: Two bodies found after hot air balloon crash in Virginia

A second body has been recovered in the fiery crash of a hot air balloon in Virginia.

Virginia State Police said the body was found Saturday as more than 100 searchers continued to hunt for a third victim. None of the victims has been identified.

The balloon drifted into a power line Friday night, burst into flames and crashed. The balloon and the basket holding the pilot also have yet to be located.

The crash occurred ahead of a weekend balloon fest in Doswell, about 25 miles (40 kilometres) north of Richmond.
