The bodies of two children, a boy and a girl, were recovered from the swollen Tonto Creek in Arizona on November 30, after the truck they and a number of others were travelling in was swept away by floods on November 29.

The kids were passengers in a auto that was crossing Tonto Creek, near the border of New Mexico, soon after 4 p.m. when the vehicle got stuck in the floodwaters, Gila County Sheriff said in a Facebook post.

Four children and one adult managed to get out of the vehicle and were stranded on an island in the middle of the creek, where they were rescued by a helicopter from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office, Johnson said. The children found dead were the son and niece of the adults.

Dodd said two adults and two children were rescued Friday.

An intense winter storm is pummeling Arizona, leaving hundreds - including tourists at Grand Canyon Village - without power, covering highways with ice and forcing authorities to declare a state of emergency, The Hill reported.

The Gila County Sheriff's office is coordinating the effort to locate the children. "We'd like to remind the public ... when they see these signs, it's very risky to attempt to cross".

Willa Rawlings was one of three children left inside a truck that was inundated by surging water after relatives attempted to drive through a crossing at Tonto Creek.

"We have no information as to why they were trying to cross the creek", Dodd said. Dodd mentioned the group was believed to be from out of city, however no particulars have been recognized.

He said their truck was found about 1,000 yards downstream from the crossing and the dead boy's body was found more than 5,000 yards from the crossing.

Crews were searching along Tonto Creek near the community of Tonto Basin.
