HILDALE, Utah (AP) - The search for a 6-year-old Utah boy, the last known victim of the floods in Hildale, will resume Monday.

Salt Lake City TV station KUTV reports that searchers and volunteers were taking a day of rest Sunday before heading out to try and locate Tyson Lucas Black.

Utah Gov. Gary Herbert visited Hildale on Saturday to tour the scene of the floods and meet with families and responders.

He held a private meeting with the Black and Jessop families, both of whom lost relatives in the flooding.

Herbert was on a trade mission in China when the floods arrived.

Heavy rain Sept. 14 also sent flash floods coursing through a narrow slot canyon in southern Utah's Zion National Park, killing seven people.
