RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Authorities in western South Dakota say first responders from North Dakota will assist in the recovery of the body of a woman who went missing in a reservoir after a boat crash.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says the North Dakota first responders are bringing an underwater inspection system with a variety of capabilities to help find the body of 33-year-old Gabrielle Fisher. Authorities are describing the effort as a body recovery operation.

The Rapid City woman was one of two people on a boat that collided with a personal watercraft Friday in Pactola Reservoir.

The sheriff’s office says the personal watercraft driver is facing boating under the influence and manslaughter charges.

The North Dakota first responders are from the Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department and the Bismarck Rural Fire Department.
