The body of a California woman who was among four people missing after two boats collided on the Colorado River was found Monday, authorities said.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office in Kingman, Arizona, said the body of 24-year-old Kirra Drury of Ventura, California was located Tuesday afternoon.

The body of Brian Grabowski, 50, of Tulare was found Tuesday morning and Christine Lewis, 51, of Visalia was found Monday. He said low light conditions undoubtedly played a role.None of the boaters were wearing life vests when the collision occurred, said Anita Mortensen, a spokeswoman for the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.

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", Herbst said.

Six other people were rushed to local hospitals with less serious injuries and another six sustained minor injuries. Several people were rescued immediately by other boaters, and one critially injured woman was airlifted to a Las Vegas hospital, according to officials.

The Hallet boat with 10 people aboard was northbound and a Sleek Craft boat, occupied by six people, was southbound when they collided head on. The Colorado River flows along the Arizona-California border.

"We have four parties unaccounted for and presumed submerged", he said. "Once (the missing) are located, then we can continue pursuing that information". The search for them has been postponed because of darkness.

On Saturday night, authorities had to temporarily halt the search because it was too unsafe to put divers into the dark waters. The Mohave County Sheriff's Office also stated that divers were in the area to conduct a search and warned boaters in the area to do so with caution.
