The three men had apparently been missing since Friday, Winburn said. A family member of one of the victims was searching for the three and initially found the car crash. 

The incident is still under investigation. Winburn said it was too early to speculate what caused the crash. 

The Bureau of Indian Affairs is the primary agency on the ongoing investigation, Winburn said.
