Troopers say a 3rd person, 45-year-old Kim Andon of Rampart was found walking along the river on Wednesday.

Andon said she and the Adams were returning to Beaver from a hunting trip on Sunday, when their boat overturned about six miles downstream of the village.

Andon told troopers the last time she saw the Adams’ they were unresponsive and that she was the only one wearing a life jacket when the boat flipped over. Search efforts for the Adams include boats and a helicopter.
