Authorities on Sunday located a second body in debris left by a mudslide and flash flooding in the Poudre Canyon.
Crews worked to recover the man’s body Sunday evening, Larimer County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Jered Kramer said. He could not immediately say whether the man was one of the three people known to be missing in the natural disaster.
Authorities on Sunday had been searching for two men and a woman who were still missing after flooding and a mudslide Tuesday destroyed six houses on Black Hollow Road, a few miles west of Rustic in the canyon northwest of Fort Collins.
Residents on Black Hollow Road had only seconds of warning before they were hit with the mudslide as a storm dropped rain on the massive Cameron Peak burn scar.
Authorities found a woman’s body Wednesday, but have worked for days to locate the others, searching through a large debris field and scanning the river downstream.
On Saturday, the floodwaters receded to a point where search crews were able to reach new areas that had been previously submerged, the sheriff’s office said.
