Some of the nine people who died in a flash flood at a swimming hole in central Arizona were members of an extended family, said authorities who resumed the search Monday for one person who remains missing.
Officials had previously said the last missing person was a 13-year-old boy, but have since realized that his body was recovered Sunday. They say the missing person is a 27-year-old man and attributed the error to miscommunications due to having such a large number of victims.
The victims were swept away by a torrent of water Saturday while at a swimming hole in the Tonto National Forest near Payson, about 100 miles (160.9 kilometers) northeast of Phoenix. The flood was the result of a thunderstorm that dumped heavy rainfall just upstream. The storm unleashed 6-foot-high floodwaters, dark with ash from a summer wildfire.
