EVERETT, Wash. (AP) - Officials say another body has been recovered from the debris of a landslide that killed dozens of people in Washington state.

The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office said Thursday that it’s not clear if the body is that of either of the two people who remain missing after the March 22 slide.

The remains of 42 people have now been recovered. Authorities ended the active search for bodies late last month, but work continues to rebuild a highway through the area.

The slide occurred when a rain-soaked hillside above the North Fork of the Stillaguamish River gave way, obliterating a neighborhood in Oso, about an hour northeast of Seattle.

Still missing are 53-year-old Steven Hadaway, who had been installing a satellite TV dish at a home, and 44-year-old Kris Regelbrugge (reh-gel-BREW’-gee), whose husband also died.
