MOSCOW (AP) — Emergency officials say 111 people remain missing and at least one person has died after a passenger boat with over 180 people onboard sank on the Volga River.

The Tatarstan region emergency ministry said that the boat sank on Sunday about 450 miles (750 kilometers) east of Moscow. It said a woman drowned and her body was delivered to a hospital.

Earlier officials said 15 people were missing. It was unclear what caused the discrepancy in the accounts.
