Canine search specialist Su Vodrazka and her dog Riggs spent the last two weeks climbing over mounds of mud and debris looking for the remains of those buried in the mudslide on the outskirts of the rural town of Oso.

It was hard work and emotionally grueling, but Vodrazka said the mission was a success.

“I think we gave a lot of families what they were looking for,” Vodrazka said.
