Larimer County reduces number reported missing
FORT COLLINS — Larimer County officials are reporting 482 people missing amid massive flooding, a sharp drop from previous reports of more than 1,000.
The sheriff’s office posted the smaller total on its website Sunday. A sheriff’s spokesman didn’t immediately return calls Monday.
The Colorado Office of Emergency Management is reporting more than 1,250 people missing, but officials say that estimate is expected to fall when new figures are announced later Monday.
The missing in Larimer County included 80- and 60-year-old women in the Cedar Cove area of Thompson Canyon east of Estes Park. The sheriff’s department says both are presumed dead.
