DENVER (AP) - A 79-year-old woman whose house was swept away by the Big Thompson River has been found dead on the river bank, bringing to eight the death toll from the massive flooding in Colorado.
The latest victim was identified as Evelyn M. Starner. Larimer County authorities said she drowned and suffered blunt force trauma. She was previously listed as missing and presumed dead.
Authorities initially said she was 80. Her body was found Saturday.
One other person was still missing and presumed dead - a 60-year-old woman from Larimer County. A man was taken off the list after walking into the sheriff's office.
The number of people unaccounted-for dwindled to six Monday as Vice President Joe Biden viewed the flooding devastation from a helicopter and met with disaster workers.
