PITTSBURGH (AP) — Searchers outside Pittsburgh are continuing to look for a kayaker who has been missing since a weekend boating accident that killed her friend.

Helene Brandy and Brittany Evans, both 25, were kayaking on the Ohio River on Saturday when witnesses saw their kayaks plunge over a dam and heard cries for help. Evans’ body was recovered a short time later.

Search boats continued to ply the river Wednesday in hopes of finding Brandy.

The friends took a selfie together shortly before the accident.
