SHOSHONE COUNTY, Idaho. - Authorities spent four hours Monday morning recovering the body of the third rafter thrown into the Coeur d'Alene river Saturday afternoon. The body was discovered Sunday night but authorities decided to wait until Monday morning to recover the body due to limited daylight.

Three men were in the raft when it capsized Saturday afternoon and only one survived. That man told deputies that the three were floating in the river when the small craft capsized and the other two people in the raft were missing.

According to the Shoshone County Sheriff's Office, the raft capsized just before noon on Saturday, at the North Fork of Coeur d'Alene River Road. Sheriff's deputies say they received a report of a body being discovered in the water. Deputies determined the body was that of a 48-year-old man.

About 30 minutes after the call, another deputy was called to the Kingston Shell Station on Coeur d'Alene River Road where a man who had been floating the river said his small raft had capsized and the two other people that were in the craft were missing.

Deputies determined the body discovered matched the description of one of the missing rafters. Authorities continued the search for the other missing person for about seven hours but were unable to locate him.

The search was called off Saturday night due to poor lighting and fast moving water.

Shoshone County Sheriffs planned on resuming the search Sunday morning but it was called off due to the high water level of the river.
