LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - The search for the fourth and final victim of a tragic flood in Colorado is over months after the destructive force of nature occurred.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office shared an update Tuesday evening stating a resident found what she believed were human remains while hiking east of Rustic Road in Larimer County. The remains belonged to Diana Brown, who was from Texas. The mudslide in Poudre Canyon back on July 20 left search crews scrambling to locate the victims.

“We are relieved the Brown family will be able to put her to rest and have closure to the terrible loss they experienced,” part of a Facebook post by the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office reads. “All the victims of the Black Hollow Flood have now been located, recovered, and identified.”

The other victims included Richard Brown, Patricia Brown and David Brown.
