Divers planned to continue their search through Saturday for a 12-year-old Colorado girl presumed drowned in a June 26 lake collision.

The girl and her 8-year-old cousin were on a raft behind their parents' houseboat about 75 feet from shore in a cove between Iceberg and Slick Rock canyons when a 12-year-old male operating a jet ski collided with the inflatable raft, according to the National Park Service.The missing girl was not wearing a life preserver but her cousin was. The younger girl was brought to the shore by the youth who was operating the jet ski and was then flown by helicopter to Phoenix for treatment of multiple skull fractures, according to the Park Service.

Park Service officials said they did not know what part of Colorado the families are from and would not release the missing girl's name.
