(KMOV) –The Missouri Water Patrol located five people after various incidents on the river Saturday night.

Starting around 8:00 p.m., the Missouri Water Patrol and the Franklin County Sheriff Department searched for two missing 16-year-old kayakers around the River Rat Resort in St. Clair County, an hour southwest of St. Louis.  Police said they were located before 10:00 p.m. and reunited with their families.

While authorities were searching for the kayakers, they discovered a capsized boat with two adults inside. Both were rescued.

Just before 9:00 p.m., authorities received a call for a missing woman near the Meramec River Bridge at mile post 185. The missing woman wondered back to her campsite around 1:00 a.m. with no injuries, according to authorities.
