Once believed found, woman still missing in mudslide

Kris Regelbrugge, 44, remains missing in the Oso-area mudslide, according to one of her husband’s brothers.

Another relative told The Seattle Times last week that Regelbrugge’s body had been recovered from the mud, about 10 feet from where the body of her husband, Navy Cmdr. L. John Regelbrugge, 49, was found.

John Regelbrugge’s brothers — Greg, Danny and Joe — and his sons recovered his body and that of his dog.

Joe Regelbrugge on Thursday said the family was initially told Kris survived the slide and was at a local hospital. Later, they were told her body had been recovered. But her name remains among the 15 listed as missing by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office.

“It’s been very confusing,” he said, adding that the brothers and their nephews have returned to the slide area every day to search for Kris Regelbrugge.
