DENVER (AP) - Colorado's widespread flooding has led to hundreds of missing person reports, but officials say many of those people are calling in safe.
Emergency management spokeswoman Micki Trost says many families have reported loved ones as missing because the loss of phone service in many areas cut off communications.
Major cell phone providers had service back up Sunday, and officials were expecting the number of missing to drop as people are able to check in. They are being asked to call the Red Cross if they had been out of touch for several days.
Four people have been confirmed dead in the flooding, with one more person presumed dead.
