Reinforcements are on the way for search teams plying the mire of a massive mudslide in Washington.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper tweeted Friday he's sending National Guard members to aid the cause.

Members of the Washington National Guard have been part of the search and recovery teams in Oso since Tuesday, joining firefighters and volunteers trying to find victims of the mile-wide slide.

The official death toll stands at 17 for now, officials said, but 90 names are on list of people unaccounted for.
