13-year-old Jovan "JoJo" Mangual's name has been added to the list of known victims who were crushed under tons of mud, trees and rocks in Oso, Washington's mudslide on March 22.
JoJo's body was found in the mudslide and officially identified on Thursday.
JoJo's father, Army Staff Sgt. Jose Mangual, showed up at the site every day, wading through the debris looking for his son.
“I want to be there, I want to find my son. I wouldn’t do it any other way,” he said in an interview with CNN Monday.
Mangual searched through mud that was 70 feet deep in some places. “Of the five deployments I’ve been on, nothing compares to this,” he said.
Staff Sergeant Jose Mangual searches tirelessly for his son, JoJo, whose body is somewhere under the mud and debris at the site of Washington's deadly landslide. 29 people have been confirmed dead and 20 people are still missing -- including 13-year-old JoJo.

His mother was out shopping and survived.
The body of JoJo's 5-year-old stepsister, Kaylee, was recovered. His two-year-old stepsister, Brooke, and his stepdad are still missing.
A mysterious illness that causes starfish to rip themselves apart has marine scientists baffled. The mystery condition has affected starfish up and down the west coast, mainly near Washington state.
The illness causes starfish to develop lesions on their bodies. The disoriented starfish twist their arms into knots. The arms then crawl away and rip apart from the bodies causing the insides to spill out. Without arms the starfish die within 24 hours. And, unlike most starfish, the arms don't regenerate.
A Hurricane Sandy victim is upset that President Obama used her for a photo op and broke his promises to help her. Donna Vanzant became one of the faces of Hurricane Sandy in touching photos taken during Obama's visit to storm damaged New Jersey.
In the days following Hurricane Sandy, Obama stopped by the marina that Vanzant owned to survey the damage. He hugged Vanzant and made empty promises to send financial aid.
Now Vanzant is crying foul because Obama has not kept his promise to help her and others who lost everything they owned to the storm's fury. Instead of sending the help that he promised, Obama's aides sent Vanzant a form email.
