A barge is now on the river to help with recovery efforts.

On Thursday, a person walking along the river near Garcia Bend Park spotted a body in the water. Officials later confirmed it was Shalvinesh's body.

Roselyn's body still hasn't been found.

Friday, a barge parked under the bridge on the Sacramento River to help in recovering the truck. Fast, cold waters have complicated and delayed recovery efforts.

Crews anchored the barge Friday morning and divers entered the water. Divers were able to place their hands on the truck, California Highway Patrol says.

CHP says the recovery of the truck will not happen on Friday, however.

Efforts will begin again Saturday morning. Authorities say recovery efforts may take up to two days.
