The bodies of two more boaters were found in the Colorado River on Tuesday after two boats crashed last weekend, sinking both boats and injuring more than a dozen people.

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

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office is searching for four people who are missing after two boats crashed on the Colorado River north of Lake Havasu Saturday night.

Divers have recovered three bodies after a fatal, high-speed boat crash on Saturday while another woman remains missing.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office reported that the victim was identified as Kirra Drury, 24 from Ventura.

More than 60 crew members from Arizona and California continued to search on boats at sunrise Monday, tracking their progress with a computer program that mapped the riverbed, according to USA Today.

The crash happened in Moabi Regional Park, a popular water recreation area along the border about 290 miles (467 kilometers) east of Los Angeles. The accident happened nearly 300 miles east of Los Angeles along part of the river that runs along the border of California and Arizona.

No one on the boats was wearing a life vest, Mohave County Sheriff Doug Schuster said, adding that use of life vests is not mandatory but is recommended.

Divers were set to search up until sundown on Sunday for the four missing, the sheriff's office said. Water depth in the area is shallow in some area but can be as deep as 30 feet in other areas.

Helicopters were deployed, and authorities scoured the shoreline to try to find them.

"These efforts will continue until all of those who are missing and unaccounted for have been located", Shuster told reporters Sunday.

The stretch of river along the California-Arizona border where the collision took place had been crowded with people enjoying the Labor Day weekend.
