search and rescue
Workers have been screening debris and watching for the body of 44-year-old Molly Kristine “Kris” Regelbrugge
Karen Sykes is an outdoors writer who is well known among Seattle hikers; she has been missing since late Wednesday.
Officials say many of those thought missing have been located and are safe.
Weary rescuers in hip waders pressed through rain and their own exhaustion Thursday, searching for more bodies and perhaps a miracle atop the pile of filth and debris that laid waste to a Washington town and killed at least 26 people.
