The three were among more than a dozen people ejected from two boats in the crash Saturday night.

Police and rescue teams discovered the remains of Christi Lewis on Monday, according to a report by CBS News.

All those aboard both boats were thrown into the water and both boats sank, the sheriff's department said in its statement, adding that some people were rescued from the water by passing boaters.

Two recreational boats collided head-on Saturday (Sept. 1) in a stretch of the Colorado River marking the California border with Arizona that was crowded with people enjoying the Labor Day weekend, sinking one boat and leaving 13 people injured, authorities said.

Ten people were injured in the crash.

The Mohave County Sheriff's Office Division of Boating Safety will continue to search for Kirra, Raegan, and one male victim who are all still missing.

The crash happened in Moabi Regional Park, a popular water recreation area along the border about 290 miles east of Los Angeles.

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. Water depth in the area is shallow in some area but can be as deep as 30 feet in other areas.

Colorado River boat crash missing victims feared dead after first victim body found.

Helicopters were deployed, and authorities scoured the shoreline to try to find them. A spokesperson for the Mohave County Sheriff's Office said that not a single person on board either boat was wearing a life vest.

As of 9:00 pm, multiple agencies are continuing to search for two missing occupants.

Search crews have been tirelessly scouring the river since the crash, with the sheriff's office saying it would continue to patrol "until all the unaccounted for passengers are located". Officials deemed it too risky to allow divers in the water after dark but planned to resume their search Sunday morning.
