GOLD BEACH, Ore.— A woman is dead and a man is missing after their 19-foot pleasure craft capsized on the Rogue River Bar Sunday morning, authorities said.


A rescue swimmer recovered the woman, who was transported to Gold Beach Memorial Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Coast Guard officials are searching for the missing man with a HH-65 and a 47-foot motor lifeboat. A mobile beach rescue unit is searching on shore.


The local sheriff's department is also on scene with a boat and a dive team.


Neither person was wearing a life jacket. Their names have not yet been released.


The accident happened around 7:30 a.m., when the water temperature was 54 degrees.
