Body of 1 person found after boats crash on Colorado River
MOABI REGIONAL PARK, Calif. (AP) — Arizona authorities say they have found the body of a woman who was among four people missing after two boats crashed on the Colorado River.
Mohave County Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Anita Mortensen says 51-year-old Christi Lewis was found Monday in a section of the river that borders California and Arizona.
Mortensen says Lewis was a California resident, but her hometown hasn’t been determined.
The search is continuing for the three other missing people.
Authorities say a boat carrying 10 people and another vessel with six people on board collided head-on Saturday night, ejecting more than a dozen people.
Authorities say both boats sank and passing boaters pulled people from the water.
Mortensen says none of the people in the two boats were wearing life vests.
