YUBA CITY  (AP) — Authorities say one person is missing and another injured after their boat capsized in a Northern California reservoir.

Yuba County Sheriff's Sgt. Wence Kemp said Monday that the men were thrown into the water after their boat hit another boat's wake at a difficult angle at the Bullards Bar Reservoir Sunday afternoon.

Kemp says the department's Marine Enforcement Unit arrived quickly and found one boater, 39-year-old George Szuh of Roseville, who was taken to a hospital. Kemp had no further information on his injuries.

Searchers are still seeking the other boater, 30-year-old Matthew Camp of Lincoln.

State fire Battalion Chief Mike Carr says rescuers have been searching for Camp in a part of the reservoir that is more than 100 feet deep.
