The Mohave County Sheriff's Office said the body of 50-year-old Brian Grabowski of Tulare, California, was found around 9 a.m.

Facebook Christine Lewis was identified as one of four people missing after two boats collided on Saturday on the Colorado River.

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

Six others were treated for less serious wounds and another six had minor injuries.

Other recreational boats had converged on the scene and further downstream to help rescue victims, said Sherwin.

According to a tweet from SB County Fire, two vessels were involved in a head-on crash that caused one of the boats to sink.

He was transported to an area hospital by ground ambulance before being flown to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center, officials said. Officials deemed it too risky to allow divers in the water after dark but planned to resume their search Sunday morning.

Colorado River boat crash missing victims feared dead after first victim body found. The body of a California woman who was among four people missing after two boats collided on the river was found Monday, authorities said.

Anita Mortensen, a sheriff's spokeswoman, said that investigators haven't yet determined if speed played any role in the accident.

The river was jammed with Labor Day weekend visitors at the time of the crash.

The name of the boater still missing hasn't been released.

"Top water and shoreline searches have been conducted and continue to be conducted this point, in addition to dive operations that have been underway for several hours", he told reporters during a Sunday afternoon press conference. The water ranged in depth from very shallow to 30 feet, he said. It took place on the Colorado River, right on the boarder between Arizona and California.
