SNOHOMISH COUNTY, WA - The death toll from the Oso mudslide remains at 30, but the Snohomish County medical examiner's office says it has identified one more of the victims. 

The medical examiner says the office is withholding that person's name however until the family is notified. Two other bodies remain unidentified.

The number of missing people is varying, but the Snohomish County sheriff deputies say they're trying to find 17 people. 

Among the recent victims identified, one was a son of a Colorado soldier.  

The medical examiner added 13-year-old Jovan Mangual to the list of the victims on Thursday.

The boy's father, Staff Sgt. Jose Mangual, is based at Fort Carson, an infantry post outside Colorado Springs.

The boy was visiting his mother in Arlington when the slide hit. His father went to Washington to help search for the boy.
