A Longmont woman drowned in the Gunnison River near Gunnison on Monday after falling off of a flotation device.

Gunnison County Sheriff Rick Besecker said the 54-year-old Kelley Koschade was floating down the river with family members when she fell off of a flotation device.

Besecker said the Koschade's death was accidental.

Besecker said family members who were with Koschade were not near any phones and were unable to call police for about an hour.

Authorities searched on the ground, in the water and from the air before finding Koschade's body about 90 minutes after arriving on scene. She had been wearing a helmet and life vest when she fell into the water.
