Cottonwood, Arizona. 16-year-old Faith Moore was driving home from work when she became trapped in a flash flood and was swept away by 8-foot floodwaters in Arizona.
Faith Moore is the granddaughter of retired Verde Valley Fire District Fire Chief and EMS Chief from Verde Valley Ambulance.
She was recognized by the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office in a press statement on Facebook as the niece of a current Cottonwood fireman.
About 150 volunteers arrived at Mingus Union High School in Cottonwood at 6 a.m. Tuesday to begin the third day of searching for Faith Moore.
