Relief agencies have uncovered the body of a 11-year-old girl missing since Friday near the Pacific port city Buenaventura, bringing the total dead from a Friday landslide up to four, Colombian media reported Monday.
The girl’s body was found about half a mile from the site of landslide.
“This gives us more encouragement to keep looking and focus on the area of Villa Popamba,” said a civil defense official.
Three of the girl’s younger siblings, aged five, six and seven, and their father are still missing.
They were last seen in their home early Friday before the rock and mud landslide washed away four houses in the area.
The children’s is reportedly receiving medical attention at a hospital in Buenaventura.
