PUEBLO, Colo. -- Searchers have found the body of woman who went missing during a fishing trip at Lake Pueblo State Park. Her friend is still missing.

Kimberlie Temple, 57, was found dead of an apparent drowning at the dam on the south side of the lake Wednesday afternoon, The Pueblo Chieftain reports. The cause and circumstances of her death remain under investigation.

Crews are still trying to find 61-year-old Frank Montoya.

"We will continue our search for Mr. Montoya in the morning near where Miss Temple was found and will provide updates on how that search proceeds," said CPW Public Information Officer Kyle Davidson.

The friends set out on a 1978 17-foot Stryker boat Saturday morning and did not return. A boat trailer and a pickup presumed to belong to Montoya were found in a parking lot near the ramp.

Temple's brother called 911 late Saturday night to report that she didn't return home, and crews with Colorado Parks and Wildlife began searching for the pair on land and water.

Investigators have not found the boat.
