Drury and Heitzig have been missing since two recreational boats - one carrying 10 people and the other carrying 6 - crashed head-on at Moabi Regional Park in California on Saturday, September 1.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office Division of Boating Safety will continue to search for Kirra, Raegan, and one male victim who are all still missing.

The body of 51-year-old Christine Lewis of Visalia, California, was found Monday in the river along the California-Arizona border.

One woman is reportedly dead and three more people are still missing after a horrific boat crash at Moabi Regional Park in California on Saturday night.

None of the boaters were wearing life jackets, which aren't required but are recommended by authorities, Mohave County Sheriff Doug Shuster said.

Citing an emergency dispatcher whose report was broadcast on local TV stations, the Los Angeles Times reported the boats were traveling at around 50 miles per hour when they collided. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to all those who knew Chrisi Lewis and to the family and friends still searching the river for their loved ones".

I could see some sparks, but we sit so low we don't see so much but I felt that something was not right and it was pointless so I came in.

One person suffered life-threatening injuries and was flown by helicopter to a hospital in Las Vegas, about 120 miles north of where the crash occurred, fire officials said in a statement. The nine others were transported to area hospitals by ambulance. The Colorado River flows along the Arizona-California border.

Underwater sonar images of the submerged boat did not appear to show the two missing passengers, according to the local fire department.

"We haven't come up with anything on contributing factors yet", she said, adding that efforts are focused on finding the missing boaters.

We will continue to update this story as more information becomes available. The search for them has been postponed because of darkness.

Rescue crews and helicopters scoured the area until 9pm, then the search mission was suspended as it became too unsafe for divers to be in the flowing water after dark.
