EVERETT, Wash. (AP) -- Search and rescue personnel believe they have found the last body from the March 22 mudslide that killed 43 people in Oso, Washington.

Although the search for victims ended in April, workers have been screening debris and watching for the body of 44-year-old Molly Kristine "Kris" Regelbrugge (reg-el-BREW'-gee).

Her husband, Navy Cmdr. John Regelbrugge III, also was killed in the slide that hit their home. His body was one of the 42 recovered earlier.

The Snohomish County sheriff's office was expected to release details at a news conference Tuesday afternoon in Everett.
