The official death tool rises to 16, after a masive landslide in Snohomish County, Washington. The number is sure to grow as other bodies are found and identified. Andrew Spencer reports at least 176 people are still unaccounted for. The family of a decorated Navy officer found his house destroyed by the massive landslide, last weekend. "They found his uniforms and his officer's sword, and then he broke and he couldn't talk no more," says John Regelbrugge, father of the landslide victim. After days without another sign, his father didn't know what to think. "You know, they might find... Or they might... I don't know. I'm just hoping against hope," says Regelbrugge. The body of Commander John Regelbrugge was found by his brothers, Tuesday, his name added to the rising death toll. With well over 100 people still missing, some relatives are holding out hope. "My husband's a survivor," says Barbara Welsh, whose husband is missing in the landslide. "And I believe in him. And that's all you can do is just keep believing." But that hope is starting to fade for others, who never imagined they'd see this kind of devastation. "When I pictured this slide, I pictured vehicles parked there, and if somebody was in their vehicle when the mudslide came on that we would just dig through the mud and pull them out of their car and they'd be okay," says Chief Travis Hots of the Snohomish County Fire Department. "But what we're finding is these vehicles are twisted and tore up into, like, pieces." Dirt and debris as deep as 20 feet in spots covers about a square mile of Snohomish County, Washington, and Tuesday rain only made the search more difficult. A candlelight vigil in nearby Arlington, just one example of communities around the country showing their support after such a terrible tragedy.
