The Lewis & Clark County Sheriff's Office says the body of a woman who was reported missing after her kayak overturned in the Missouri River on Saturday has been recovered.

Undersheriff Jason Grimmis says they received the call at around 3:15 p.m.

He says a couple was out recreating when the woman's kayak overturned a quarter-mile up from the Wolf Creek Bridge toward Holter Dam.

Her boyfriend began searching for her and then called 911.

Her boat and life-jacket were found late Saturday.

Wolf Creek Fire, Lewis & Clark search and rescue, Lewis & Clark Sheriff's Office "wet" team, and Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks participated in the search.

Search efforts were halted overnight due to darkness and thunderstorms in the area.

Search operations resumed at 7 a.m. on Sunday, and the body was found late Sunday morning.

Her body was found by a fisherman about three miles downstream from where she was reported missing.

Authorities have not released the woman's name, nor any other details, at this point.

We will update you when we get more information.
