EVERETT, Wash. (LISA BAUMANN, Associated Press) — The number of confirmed deaths in the Washington state mudslide rose to 30 on Thursday with the release of two more victim names.

The Snohomish County medical examiner’s office says 67-year-old Gloria Halstead and 13-year-old Jovon E. Mangual, both of Arlington, died of multiple blunt force injuries in the accident.

The number of missing — which had stood at 18 Wednesday — is now at 13, according to operations manager Heather Oie, who couldn’t explain why the tally differs.

The office has released 27 names and is still trying to identify three victims.

Recovery crews are still searching for more bodies in the March 22 landslide that crushed the community of Oso, about 55 miles north of Seattle.
