LARIMER COUNTY, Colo. — A man from Drake, Colo. who had been listed as missing and presumed dead has been found alive and well according the authorities Monday.

The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office says the man checked in with them. He told deputies he climbed out of a window in his house before it was swept away in the flood.

A 60-year-old woman from Cedar Cove is the only person left on Larimer County’s missing and presumed dead list. A 79-year-old woman was confirmed dead during the weekend.

There are six people listed as missing. Family and friends of these people have not been able to contact them since the flood. In some cases, contact was sporadic even before the flood and there is no way to be sure they were in the flood zone at all.

  1. James Atwood, Pinewood Springs
  2. Bruce Bechtel, Loveland
  3. Carl Grunke, Estes Park
  4. Jon-Erik Huffspater, Loveland
  5. Marilyn Powell, Drake
  6. Michael Williams, Drake

Anyone with information on these individuals is asked to call Investigator Kevin Maul at 970-498-5164.
