LANGLEY, Ark. (AP) - State police say they're "quite
confident" the body of a young girl found Monday is the last one
they were looking for after a flash flood swept through an Arkansas
Capt. Mike Fletcher says police want to compare DNA collected
from the family to the body before officially identifying the
flood's 20th victim.
Dozens of people were feared missing after the pre-dawn Friday
flood, but authorities narrowed their search Sunday to just one
person known to have been camping at the Albert Pike Recreation
Fletcher says that although girl's body is believed to be the
last one sought, crews will conduct a limited search Tuesday. But
it will be scaled back from the hundreds of people who took to the
woods and river in the past few days.
