ROQUE BLUFFS, MAINE — A woman from Sunbury is identified as a drowning victim in the state of Maine.

The body of Melissa Moyer, 38, was one of two people that were pulled from a car that was underwater.

The other victim was identified as the driver, Amy Stiner, 37, of Machias, who was 5 months pregnant.
