Police are still searching for Ms Drury's friend Raegan Heitzig, who is the only victim unaccounted for after two boats travelling at about 80km/h collided head-on. One of the boats began to sink following the crash.

The body of a Ventura woman was found Tuesday after two boats collided on Saturday on the Colorado River along the California-Arizona border.

The others aboard the boats were not seriously injured and did not need to go to a hospital, authorities said.

Two people were critically injured in the crash and flown to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas, officials said.

A stretch of the Colorado River was closed between Topock Gorge and Sandbar as divers renewed search efforts for the missing boaters again Tuesday morning, according to the Sheriff's Office. The accident happened nearly 300 miles east of Los Angeles along part of the river that runs along the border of California and Arizona.
