Thirty Washington Mudslide Victims Recovered, 15 Remain Missing

Ted S. Warren-Pool/Getty Images(OSO, Wash.) -- Authorities say 30 bodies have now been recovered from the mudslide in Washington state and 27 have been positively identified by the medical examiner in Snohomish County.

The latest victims to be identified are a 67-year-old woman and a 13-year-old boy.

Fifteen people remain missing, but the medical examiner says one set of remains does not match anybody on that missing list. Work is being done to ID the man.

The March 22 mudslide near Oso leveled at least 35 houses and 14 other homes and dammed the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River.

The debris field stretches over one square mile.
