Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle says the body found Friday was that of a woman who was swept away Thursday after the vehicle she was riding in got stuck in water north of Boulder.

She was not identified.

A man in the same vehicle died after he got out trying to help her.

A third person died Thursday when a structure in Jamestown collapsed. To the south, Colorado Springs officers found a man’s body in Fountain Creek.

Pelle says there are 80 people in Boulder County who are still unaccounted for, but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are missing.
