The second body of two men missing in a landslide at a gravel pit in southern Mississippi has been found.

Ray Coleman, a spokesman for the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency, says in a statement that rescuers found the body about 9:50 p.m. Friday. The worker was found in a portion of the slurry near the equipment he was operating.

The body of the first worker was recovered Thursday morning inside a piece of equipment.

Officials have not released the names of the employees at this time.

Officials with the Mining Safety and Health Administration say the two men were operating heavy equipment for Green Brothers at a pit in Crystal Springs on June 3 when they were buried in 10 feet to 12 feet of mud, slush and sluice.
