Remains of a third person swept away by floodwaters on Monday were found by teams searching areas of the Hill Country in Kimble County Saturday evening nearly a week after storms caused flooding of the Llano River, according to a release from the Texas A&M Forest Service.

The unidentified person was discovered around 6:20 p.m. near Yates Crossing in Junction, a news release reported.

The family has been notified but identification of the victim was not made public as of Saturday evening and the forest service declined to provide further details.

Kimble County officials reported Saturday morning that search operations had resumed for the two people still missing after heavy flooding earlier in the week.

Approximately 40 persons engaged in the search that included divers, water rescue craft, and nine emergency service canine teams, according to a news release.

Two other victims, swept away by the same floodwaters on Monday, were found dead by search teams on Thursday.

The storms also caused heavy flooding in nearby Uvalde County where teams discovered the remains of Patrick Ojeda on Friday. Ojeda was swept into the Sabinal River by floodwaters after his truck got stuck on a bridge.
