Maps of Stillaguamish River could aid search for bodies

Authorities in Snohomish County are hoping to review state Department of Fish and Wildlife maps in an effort to determine points of the Stillaguamish River where possible human remains might collect in the months to come.

Craig Bartlett, spokesman for the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, said that law enforcement in Snohomish County have requested “river maps showing stream channels and choke points on the river.”

A source close to the mudslide investigation said officials are hoping to review the charts to determine points of the river where remains might collect later this spring or summer.

Search and rescue teams are looking for survivors as well as bodies in the mudslide, but have been pulled back because the slide continues to move.
