The grim task of scouring the area around an Arkansas campground where 20 people were killed by flash flooding is winding down.

Arkansas State Police Capt. Mike Fletcher says no search crews were out late Tuesday morning, but he says the search had not yet been officially suspended.

No one has been found alive since Friday morning, hours after the flood.

Crews found the 20th victim, a young girl, on Monday.

Fletcher says authorities still were waiting Tuesday for DNA test results to confirm the girl's identity.

But he has said authorities are "quite confident" she is the last person who was reported missing from the disaster.

State police have said they think many others first feared missing were camping in other remote parts of the state.
