Man Finds Sister's Body In Arkansas River Days After Rafting Accident

By  | 

Days after a woman was thrown from a raft, authorities say her brother found her body in the river.

Amanda Taylor, 31, had been missing since Saturday night. Authorities say her raft overturned after riding over a diversion dam in the Arkansas River near Salida. Five of the seven people in the raft made it back to shore, and one man had to be rescued from the water. Taylor was the only one who didn't survive.

Taylor's family stayed in Salida after the accident to search for her. Her body was finally found Wednesday at the confluence of the Little Arkansas River, which is near Salida's south city limits. The Chaffee County Sheriff's Office says Taylor's body was found three miles from where she was last seen.

An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday.
