CO - Darrell Johnson, 31, Big Thompson Canyon, 1976 - Presumed dead in flood
A man believed to have died in a Colorado flood in 1976 has been found living in Oklahoma.
Sixty-three-year-old Darrell Johnson told the Fort Collins Coloradoan for a story Friday that he didn't know he had been counted among the 144 victims of the Big Thompson Canyon flood until a resident called him last year.
Barb Anderson said residents didn't want his name on a memorial plaque without proof he was dead.
Johnson and his family had decided to leave their shabby cabin the morning of the flood after just one night. A few hours later, the resort was washed away.
