HILDALE, Utah — Search efforts are being re-evaluated for a 6-year-old boy swept away in a flash flood in southern Utah two weeks ago.

Several neighboring jurisdictions assisted the Hildale community after the flash flood killed three women and nine children Sept. 14. Since that time, crews have been searching for the last victim, Tyson Black, who is presumed dead.

After an unsuccessful search over the weekend, outside resources have returned to their own jurisdictions, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office Tuesday. The sheriff’s office has turned the search over to local agencies, who will evaluate what steps to take in the future.

Sheriff’s Office officials say they will continue to support the Hildale community when needed.

“So many of our volunteers and employees who assisted are saddened by the lack of success in locating six-year-old Tyson Black,” the sheriff’s office states. “We had hoped that, with the extensive effort expended by the search teams and volunteers, he would have been found by now.”
