Johanna Powell: 'I am sorry that this happened', says boat co-owner

A body has been found in the search for a missing woman who vanished after a boat capsized on a river trip in Laos, south-east Asia.

Johanna Powell, from Cardiff, was reported missing on Saturday.

The 37-year-old, a BBC Wales picture editor, was on a tourist boat on the Mekong River near Pak Beng.

Her brother-in-law Dean Price said the family was told she was asleep when the boat hit a rock in rapids causing it to tip, take on water and capsize.

The co-owner of the cruise company, Adisak Star, spoke to the BBC's Mark Hutchings.
