Arduous search for missing in mudslides near Santa Barbara

MONTECITO, Santa Barbara County — Crews dug away at masses of mud, boulders and debris with earth-moving machines and shovels Saturday, hoping to find five people still missing in a mudslide disaster that already has killed at least 19 people.

The army of searchers and recovery workers in Montecito swelled to more than 2,000 five days after a powerful storm swept in from the Pacific and dumped a deluge on mountain slopes above the coastal enclave that were burned bare by a huge wildfire in December.

Sheriff Bill Brown said the body of missing Morgan Christine Corey, 25, was found Saturday. Her 12-year-old sister, Sawyer Corey, was found dead earlier.
