JENSEN, Utah (AP) -- Divers hope to find a 14-year-old Colorado boy today missing since a swim in the Green River on Tuesday.

Uintah County Sheriff's deputies say the group was attempting to cross a sandbar to get from one side of the Green River to the other. But an undercurrent grabbed the swimmers.

All of them were able to get out of the water except one.

Divers have searched for the boy since Tuesday, but the water has no visibility because of the amount of sediment in the river.

Wednesday, a dam about 100 miles away was cut off, which means the river should be lower by today improving the chances of finding the boy.

The group was from Denver. They were camping in Dinosaur National Monument.
