RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Searchers have recovered the body of a Rapid City woman who went missing after a boat crash on Pactola Reservoir.

The Pennington County Sheriff’s Office says searchers on Monday used a remotely operated underwater vehicle to locate the body of 33-year-old Gabrielle Fisher.

The Burleigh County Sheriff’s Department and the Bismarck Rural Fire Department in North Dakota sent personnel and equipment to the scene to help in the search.

Fisher was one of two people on a boat that collided with a personal watercraft Friday. The personal watercraft driver is facing charges of boating under the influence and manslaughter.

Jody Kreycik made his initial court appearance Monday but did not enter a plea. He faces up to 11 years in prison if convicted.
