EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — Officials say another body has been recovered from the site of a landslide that killed dozens of people Washington state.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday it’s not clear if the body is that of either of the two people remaining on the missing list after the March 22 mudslide.
The remains of 42 people have now been recovered. Authorities ended their active search efforts late last month, but work continues to rebuild State Route 530 through the area.
The slide occurred when a rain-soaked hillside above the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River gave way, obliterating a neighborhood in Oso, about an hour northeast of Seattle.
The two who remain missing are 53-year-old Steven Hadaway, who had been installing a satellite TV dish at a home, and 44-year-old Kris Regelbrugge (reh-gel-BREW’-gee), whose husband also died.
