CALGARY, Alberta (AP) -

Police say two bodies have been recovered from floodwaters that have devastated much of southern Alberta.

   Authorities say two men had been seen floating lifeless in the Highwood River near High River on Thursday.

   The Royal Canadian Mounted Police also say a woman who was reported missing after she was swept with her camper into the Highwood River in the Longview area has not been found.

   In their efforts to determine if any other people are missing due to the flooding, the RCMP is asking residents who were forced to leave the High River area to register at evacuation shelter.

   The Town of High River remains under a mandatory evacuation order.
