Two women are missing after a group went over a dam Monday afternoon in the area of Richmond, Virginia, authorities said.

The Richmond Fire Department got a report just before 3:15 p.m. that a group of people were stranded in the river, Assistant Chief Jeffrey Segal said at a news conference Monday night.

Minutes later, the fire department got a report that the group went over Bosher's Dam. It was not immediately clear what kind of watercraft the group was using.

Ten people were rescued, one of whom self-rescued, Segal said. One person drove to the hospital. The others who were rescued were taken to a reunification center.

Two women remain missing. Henrico County police identified them as Lauren E. Winstead, 23, of Henrico County, and Sarah E. Erway, 28, of Chesterfield County.

Crews continued searching for the two missing people Tuesday.
