That's down from the 30 people they previously considered missing.

The Snohomish County medical examiner's office said Monday that it has positively identified 18 of the 24 victims in the official death toll.

Snohomish County Executive Director Gary Haakenson says the remains of three additional victims were found Monday, but they have not yet been included in the medical examiner's official numbers.

The slide struck a rural area northeast of Seattle on March 22.
