LANGLEY, Ark. - Teams scouring miles of river and rugged wilderness found two more bodies Saturday, bringing the death toll to 18 from flash floods that swept through a popular campground. Twenty-two people were unaccounted for.

The last time someone was found alive was late Friday morning, hours after a pre-dawn wall of water surprised sleeping campers at the Albert Pike Recreation Area, leaving them frantically trying to scramble up the steep terrain in the dark.

As the swollen rivers subsided and the hours ticked by Saturday, anguished relatives waiting for word of loved ones grew more and more frustrated, lashing out at reporters, knowing that at some point the search mission would become one of recovery.

It's sad. At least 6 of them were children ages 7 and under.  That's just a couple of hours south of me, so we've had a lot of coverage on it. I feel horrible for the families that lost a loved one due to it.
