MANITOU SPRINGS, Colo. - Three people remain missing in Manitou flooding.

The Manitou Springs police chief said three people are still unaccounted for after Friday evening's massive flood event that swept cars down Highway 24 like toy boats and washed away at least one home in town.

Justin Travis, 24, was one of those missing.  He lives in a house on Narrows Road, in the path of floodwater from nearby Williams Canyon.

Travis is a white male, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 200 pounds. Authorities said he had "lots of tattoos," was balding and wore glasses. His mother said she hasn't heard from his since Friday.

A second person unaccounted for is a petite white female seen clinging to a tree during the flooding.  She had on a black blouse, tan pants and has blonde hair.

A description of the third person, known as Steve, was not released. He also lives on Narrows Road.

Authorities asked anyone who has seen these individuals to contact local authorities.
