   LYONS, Colo. (AP) -- Colorado officials have raised the death toll from this week's flooding to four after a woman's body was found in Boulder.
 
   Boulder County Sheriff Joe Pelle says the body found Friday was that of a woman who was swept away Thursday after the vehicle she was riding in got stuck in water north of Boulder.
 
   She was not identified.
 
   A man in the same vehicle died after he got out trying to help her.
 
   A third person died Thursday when a structure in Jamestown collapsed. To the south, Colorado Springs officers found a man's body in Fountain Creek.
 
   Pelle says there are 80 people in Boulder County who are still unaccounted for, but that doesn't necessarily mean they are missing.
