LYONS, Colo. (AP) – The number of missing in Colorado’s flooding dropped as authorities reached more victims.

Across the Front Range, the number of people unaccounted for plunged from a high of 1,200 to about 200 thanks to rescues and the restoration of phone service in more areas that allowed residents to contact family and authorities.

Six people died, and three Larimer County residents were missing and presumed dead.
