RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Authorities in Virginia say search teams have found the body of one of two women missing for days after a dozen people on rafts and paddleboards went over a dam on the James River.
Henrico County police tweeted that the body of 23-year-old Lauren Winstead was found just west of a bridge on Wednesday afternoon.
Police say the search for 28-year-old Sarah Erway will continue, but it’s transitioning from a search and rescue mission to a recovery operation.
The pair went missing Monday after going over the Bosher Dam with 10 companions on a float trip.
News outlets reported that the others were rescued or made it to safety on their own.
