The number of people unaccounted for in the Colorado floods has dwindled to six.

The Larimer County Sheriff's Department said Monday rescuers over the weekend spoke in person or on the phone with 54 people previously considered missing.
Schulz says efforts are underway to locate the six people still unaccounted for. He says other people might be missing who haven't been reported.
More than 1,200 people were listed as missing in the first days of the flooding. That number has dropped dramatically as communication and highway access has been restored.
The death toll remains at seven.
The flooding this month wreaked havoc across 17 counties and 2,000 square miles. Vice President Joe Biden is scheduled to visit Colorado on Monday to view the damage and survey recovery efforts.
