LANGLEY, Ark. (AP) - State police say the 20th victim of a flash flood that swept through a popular Arkansas campground was a young girl. But authorities don't yet know if she is the last person they were looking for.

Capt. Mike Fletcher says crews found the girl's body Monday morning.

Officials had said earlier that they still were looking for a young girl missing from the campground at the Albert Pike Recreation Area. But Fletcher says searchers aren't positive if the girl whose body they found was the same one reported missing by her family.

Fletcher says police will wait to announce the girl's name until her identity is confirmed by dental records or DNA.  State police spokesman Bill Sadler says searchers will decide Monday night whether to continue the search Tuesday.
