FLAMING GORGE, Wyo., Feb. 12, 2017 (Gephardt Daily) — On Sunday afternoon, divers recovered the body of a Plain City, Utah, woman who died in an ice-fishing accident in Flaming Gorge.

According to a news release from Sweetwater County Sheriff Mike Lowell, divers and support personnel from the Sweetwater Dive Team and the Green River Fire Department Ice Rescue Team recovered the body of Rebecca Weston, 59, at about 1:07 p.m. in approximately 100 feet of water.

On Saturday, the release states, Weston and three family members were in a tracked all-terrain vehicle on an ice-fishing outing when the ATV went through the ice. The others were able to escape.

Melia Peters Campbell Frank said in a Facebook post on Sunday, “My sister has been found and the long process of grieving and closure is only beginning. … Let’s all show Becky that her love and kindness will live on by being just a little nicer, withholding judgment just a little longer and giving those around us a shoulder to lean on. Rebecca Weston we love you forever.”
