A fourth body was recovered from the collapse site of Baltimore's Francis Scott Key bridge, different outlets reported on Tuesday.

The victim was not identified at the request of the family. He was trapped inside a vehicle from the construction company all victims worked for and that fell on the river after the Dali ship crashed onto the bridge.

Two of the bodies from the workers who fell from the bridge remain unfound. All those who fell from the bridge were presumed dead shortly after given the river's conditions and the amount of time that had passed since the crash.

The bodies of 35-year-old Maynor Yasir Suazo-Sandoval, 35-year-old Alejandro Hernandez Fuentes, and 26-year-old Dorlian Castillo Cabrera have been found. Miguel Luna, Jose Mynor Lopez and a man named Carlos, whose full name has not been disclosed, were the remaining workers to be found.

Only two of the eight Latino migrant workers survived the crash. All of them hailed from Mexico, Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras, and were filling potholes on the bridge in the early hours of March 26.

Nearly 40% of the construction workforce in the Washington region is made up of immigrants, according to CASA, an immigrant rights group based in Silver Spring, Maryland.

"Maryland continues to pray for the families and loved ones affected by this tragedy. They have our thoughts, our hearts, and our support," Maryland Gov. Wes Moore said.

"We hope that everyone will respect the request of the family for privacy during this difficult time. As we continue to recover those who have perished, may we never forget them, their loved ones, and the commitment they made to work in a profession that bettered the lives of so many Marylanders across the state."

The FBI opened this week a criminal probe of the crash, with federal agents boarding the Dali ship on Monday with search warrants to conduct "court authorized law enforcement activity."

People familiar with the issue told the outlet that the investigation will look into the events that led to the moment when the ship led the port.

One goal will be determining whether the crew knew about the ship's problems that rendered it unsafe to travel and led it to crash about half an hour later.
