Sgt. Rich Adamson says the bodies of 22-year-old Talia Rushing and 2-year-old Layton Hallmark of Boise have not been found.
 
The ISP says 29-year-old Boone Hallmark fell asleep while driving at 3 a.m. Wednesday. Adams says Hallmark tried to get the victims out of the car, but was washed out of the vehicle by the fast-moving water.
 
Hallmark was treated at a Grangeville hospital and released.
 
Divers have not been able to remove the car from the water.
