September 3, 2018

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.
