Search resumes for those missing after Ark. flood

The search has resumed in Arkansas for nearly two dozen people missing after flood waters swept through a campground.

LANGLEY, Ark. (AP) — The search has resumed in Arkansas for nearly two dozen people missing after flood waters swept through a campground.

The search had been suspended Saturday night because it was too dangerous to continue as darkness fell upon the rocky terrain.

At least 18 people have been killed by the floods. The victims were from Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas.

The last time someone was found alive was late Friday morning. Only two bodies were found Saturday as swollen rivers subsided and anguished relatives awaiting word of loved ones grew more frustrated, knowing that at some point the search mission would become one of recovery.
