BETHEL (AP) -- The search continued Sunday for a woman missing since Thursday night on a trip to the Yukon River village of Grayling, Alaska State Troopers said.

Mary Semone and her sister Flossie Semone left with Flossie's four children late Thursday night on a trip from the village of Shageluk to Grayling.

Flossie's husband, John Arrow, followed to hours later to make sure they made the trip safely.

Arrow found his wife and four children in their boat, stuck on a mud bank. The children told their father that Mary Semone had jumped out of the boat. She was apparently swept away in the river.

Search crews from Holy Cross, Aniak, Grayling, Bethel and Kwethluk were involved in the search, troopers said.
