DENVER (AP) - Three people are dead and another is missing after tubing and boating accidents on Colorado’s swift rivers over the weekend.

On Sunday, a Grand Junction man died after falling out of his inflatable kayak on the Fryingpan River in Basalt. A 23-year-old Parker man also drowned following a tubing accident on the Arkansas River near Pueblo.

The Denver Post reports searchers recovered the body Monday of a 34-year-old Denver man who fell into the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument on a rafting trip Saturday. Fellow rafters searched for him in the remote Gates of Lodore (luh-DOHR’) canyon before leaving to report him missing at a ranger station Sunday.

Searchers also looked for but failed to find a 20-year-old man who fell off his inner tube in rapids on the South Platte River near Denver on Saturday.
