FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — Larimer County officials say the number of people missing from the Colorado floods has dropped below 200, about half what it was just a day earlier.

Sheriff Justin Smith announced on Twitter Tuesday that 197 are unaccounted for. The total stood at 398 on Monday.

Another 183 people were missing in Boulder County.

Statewide, 648 people were reported missing as of Monday. The new figures from Larimer County would reduce that number to 447.

The numbers are dropping as people are rescued from communities that were isolated by the floods and left without phone service.
