More crews, dogs join search for Arizona man swept away by floodwaters

TONTO NATIONAL FOREST, Ariz. (AP) -- An expanded search is underway for a man missing since floodwaters swept through an Arizona canyon, killing nine family members.

About 75 searchers are looking for 27-year-old Hector Garnica, missing since Saturday in mountains about 100 miles (160 kilometers) northeast of Phoenix. Authorities say several more trained dogs also will be a part of the search Tuesday.

Detective David Hornung of the Gila County Sheriff's Office says he's seen miracles happen before and searchers haven't given up hope of finding Garnica alive. But Hornung says monsoon rains forecast through Friday may make the search more difficult.

The search was suspended Monday afternoon because of thunderstorms moving into the Tonto National Forest area.

Garnica was the father of three children -- ages 3, 5 and 7 -- who died after being swept away by the rushing water.

Hornung says Garnica's wife also died in the floodwaters. Family and friends identified Maria Raya-Garcia as Hector Garnica's wife.

A torrent of water came Saturday as people were cooling off in a creek when a rainstorm upstream unleashed floodwaters.

In all, nine people who were part of Garnica's extended family died after being swept away.
