A man's body pulled from the Oklahoma River Tuesday may be one of Friday's flash flood victims.

Two public works employees who were checking on a capsized boat found the body. Search crews have been walking the river's banks - looking for the remaining flood victims.

The body of the man found Tuesday morning hasn't been identified and family members struggle to maintain hope. The body of a man - found entangled in brush and debris, face down in the water by two public works employees - has family of 21-year-old Timmy Shrum - desperate for answers.

A likelihood that has Shallen Shrum and her family now wondering if the man found - is in fact her son. As far as she knows - four of her family members - including her son - are still missing.

OKC firefighters say the biggest issue is going through thick debris - making sure there's isn't anything entangled in it - and the rough current doesn't make recovery efforts any easier.

It's a very similar story on the northwest side of the city, where another family continues their search for 'one more' family member swept away in Friday's flood waters.

Search crews will resume recovery efforts for both families – Wednesday morning.
