DINOSAUR, Colo. (AP/CBS4) – A woman is missing after a commercial raft flipped near the Utah border.

The woman was last seen Friday around 5 p.m. at Disaster Falls in Dinosaur National Monument.

Park official Dan Johnson said the missing woman was the only rafter who did not make it to shore.

Johnson said the raft was pinned to a rock by the force of water flowing through the Green River.

“Classic Lifeguard Air Ambulance was dispatched to conduct air reconnaissance along the river corridor until darkness prevented further efforts.  The search and rescue team was mobilized at Gates of Lodore in preparation to launch Saturday morning,” Dan Johnson with the National Park Service said in a statement.

The woman is not being identified pending notification of her family.
