The more than 200 people working on the sludgy heap cling to hope that at least one survivor is waiting for them in some pocket of the pile, which is a square mile wide and 40 feet deep in places.
At this point, narrowing the missing list means only one thing: digging. There are no more phone calls to relatives or door to door searches in hopes of locating people who just haven't checked in yet.
After six days of searching, people perhaps aren't the only ones showing signs of strain. Shane Barco's 3 year old German shepherd has found bodies and body Nike Air Max 90 Ultra Breathe Junior
Excavators pulled one car out of the muck, but it was unclear if they Air Max 90 Atomic Red discovered anybody.
Five people injured by the mudslide remain in a Seattle hospital, including a 5 month old boy in critical condition.
The moisture made the already treacherous surface even more unstable and raised concern about the safety of collapsed hillside above them.

The body of Jefferds' granddaughter, 4 month old Sanoah Huestis, was found Thursday, said Dale Petersen, the girl's great uncle.
Petersen said he arrived on the scene to help look for survivors to find that work had stopped. A firefighter informed him and others that the infant had been found, Petersen said.
He said the news provides closure for the family.
"At this time, we're not using any other type of methods other than the search and rescue," said Casey Broom of the Snohomish County emergency operations centre.
"We spent a lot of time together," he said of the baby girl.
Despite the new rain, water levels on the eastern side of the slide area receded, uncovering flattened homes and crushed cars that previously were inaccessible.
"I fully expect that number to go up here very, very soon," said Snohomish County District 21 Fire Chief Travis Hots.
The searchers walk on plywood pathways to keep from sinking into the sucking slurry. Their task was made more difficult Thursday by rain that saturated the sand, silt and clay that make up the debris pile.
Rescue and cadaver dogs occasionally led crews to a wrecked car or the ruins of a house containing a body. Teams then began removing the corpse, ignoring the muck that clogged their tools. As the victim was taken away, silence fell over the site.
"We do know this could end up being the largest mass loss of Washingtonians," Gov. Jay Inslee said Thursday. "We're looking for miracles to occur."
"My heart is telling me I'm not giving up yet," Hots said. "If we find just one more person alive, it's all worth it to me."
DARRINGTON, Wash. Weary rescuers in hip waders pressed through rain and their own exhaustion Thursday, searching for more bodies and perhaps a miracle atop the pile of filth and debris that laid waste to a Washington town and killed at least 25 people.
Days of combing through what Barco called a blender of debris have exhausted the dog, leading Barco to stop the search for a while.
"Right now there (is) no risk of additional slides, but we're watching the rain," said Steven Thomsen, the county's public works director. "If it starts to move, we'll pull the crews out, but we don't see that happening."
Family members have confirmed a handful of other fatalities to news organizations.

The medical examiner's office has so far formally identified three victims: Christina Jefferds, 45, of Arlington; Stephen A. Neal, 55, of Darrington; and Linda L. McPherson, 69, of Arlington.
"You'll fall in waist deep in some areas, knee deep in some areas," said Washington National Guard Senior Airman Charlotte Gibson. "We just keep pushing on, doing what we can as slowly and meticulously as we can to make sure we don't miss anything."
If dozens more bodies are found or left entombed in the debris, the Oso mudslide could become one of Washington state's largest disasters. The 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens killed 57 people, and a 1910 avalanche near Stevens Pass that struck two trains killed 96.
Boats with dogs on board searched the areas, and crews inserted underwater cameras into vehicles to see if anybody was inside. Nike Air Max 90 Blue Graphite
