A day spent enjoying the outdoors quickly turned into a nightmare on Memorial Day after a group 12 of people on the James River ended up needing to be rescued when they went over a Richmond dam. Two women in the group were soon considered missing. After search and rescue efforts the following day, crews returned for day three to attempt to find 23-year-old Lauren Winstead and 28-year-old Sarah Erway. Henrico Police confirmed the remains of Lauren Winstead were found on the river Wednesday afternoon. Sarah Erway’s remains were found a week later, on June 6, concluding the search.
