Authorities are fitting ground crews with GPS tracking devices as they look for a 16-year-old Cottonwood girl missing since her car became stranded in a flood-swollen wash.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office says the devices will allow searchers looking for Faith Moore to map the region and to plan next steps. The search continued Tuesday with personnel from multiple agencies and volunteers checking between where Moore’s car was found and downstream to the Verde River. Moore became stuck Saturday night at a low-water crossing before being swept downstream during a rescue attempt.
