Body of Colorado woman who fell into creek found
STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colorado – The body of a woman who fell into a fast flowing creek more than two weeks ago has been found.
Family members, volunteers and members of the Routt County sheriff’s office found the body of 40-year-old Rebecca Green of Steamboat Springs Monday. Crews weren’t able to free her body until late Tuesday morning.
Green fell into Fish Creek near Steamboat Springs while hiking with her 8-year-old son June 13. The two fell in below the upper falls on the creek. The boy grabbed a branch and escaped from the creek with minor injuries.
Darrel Levingston of Routt County Search and Rescue says Green was found about 100 yards from where she fell in after water levels dropped.
