Second person reported missing found after Colorado mudslide, flood

Two of three people reported missing after a fast-moving mudslide swept through Manitou Springs, Colo., have been found safe.

The Gazette reports a man who recently moved to the area affected by the flood was found Saturday. On Sunday, the El Paso County Sheriff's office said another man thought to have disappeared in the flood, 24-year-old Juston Travis, was accounted for.

Authorities are still trying to determine what happened to an unidentified woman witnesses saw clinging to a tree during Friday night's mudslide.

At least one person was killed in the slide, which also destroyed six houses and damaged more than 30 others in an area burned by the Waldo Canyon Fire last year.

Police Chief Joe Ribeiro says crews continue to sift through creek beds filled with debris.
