All missing people accounted for in Boulder County

By  | 

DENVER (AP) Boulder County emergency officials say all people reported missing by family and friends in flooded communities have been accounted for.

Spokeswoman Jennifer Bray said Friday the number of people unaccounted for dropped overnight from four to zero.

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.

She says emergency officials are still receiving 20 to 40 calls per day of missing people, but many have turned out to be unfounded or for people located outside the county.

Larimer County sheriff's spokesman John Schulz says the number of people unaccounted for there stands at 139, but is expected to drop Friday.

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