The search for victims of last week's deadly Southern California mudslides pushed into Monday, with hundreds of rescue workers with dogs and scanners hunting for four people still listed as missing after the rain-driven slides that killed 20 people. Emergency officials said hopes were diminishing that they would pull more survivors from the ravaged landscape of hardened muck, boulders and twisted debris left behind by the Tuesday mudslides that scoured a landscape already left barren by last year's record-setting wildfires. "We're still out there with search and rescue crews who will continue to work until we can account for those four still missing," Santa Barbara County Fire Department spokeswoman Amber Anderson said in a phone interview.
