A GoFundMe page has been set up for the Mesa County family involved in this tragedy. Click here

Mesa County Search and Rescue have not found a body and have not released the identity of the missing teenager. However, this story from KKCO seems to have a little more information.

We know that this community truly takes care of it's own. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the boy's friends, family and loved ones.



The statement from the GoFundMe page said:

"Alex Head is a very loved brother and son. On July 6th his family was hit with an unthinkable tragedy when 17 year old Alex was pulled away by the Colorado River. For the past 3 days there have been search parties looking up and down the river hoping to find Alex. There are four other children that need to be taken care of and our hope is for all donations to help the family with any costs that may come and to help with income for any time off of work that their parents must take. If you can't donate then please share and send your love and prayers. Thanks so much!"
