The three children, aged 8, 11 and 14 years, could have quickly got to safety, said a police spokesman. But there was no trace of the mother.
The body was finally found in a side channel, the police said. Boats and helicopters with thermal imaging cameras were also used in the search.
The police are investigating whether it was an accident or whether the vehicle was deliberately steered into the water. Other scenarios are excluded.
