Count Of Missing In Larimer County Drops To 82

DENVER (AP) – The number of people reported missing in Colorado’s flooding continues to drop.

Boulder County emergency officials said Friday that all people reported missing by family and friends have been accounted for. The list dropped from four to zero overnight.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Bray says five teams of detectives have been compiling lists, eliminating duplicate names, cross-checking evacuees and going door to door to track down people.

In neighboring Larimer County, 82 people are still unaccounted for, down from 139. Teams have searched over 90 percent of homes on their list. Some people were found safe at home while neighbors reported that others had evacuated.

The total number of confirmed flooding deaths is seven, plus three missing and presumed dead.
