Search continues for teen missing in Texas flood

(Continued)

Roxanne DeLeon arrived there Sunday with her 18-month-old son, 6-year-old daughter, 15-year-old daughter and husband, a day after escaping through waist-deep water in their rented home with nothing but what they were wearing, her purse and some diapers. They didn’t even have time to grab shoes.

DeLeon said they spent the night on the floor of a relative’s home because family members don’t have enough room for all of them, and their insurance agent cannot provide help that would get them into a motel or apartment until after Memorial Day.

“It feels like we’re stuck,” DeLeon said Sunday. “One relative can keep my son part of the day while I’m at work, but who’s going to pick up my kids from school? I never thought my family would go through something like this.”
