The body of a four-month-old girl was found Thursday during the search for survivors of the Oso landslide.

Sanoah Violet Huestis and her grandmother, Christina Jefferds, were killed following Saturday’s slide. Jefferds, 45, was babysitting when it happened.

Jefferds’ husband, Seth, and his step-daughter, Natasha Huestis, were in Arlington when it happened. Huestis is Sanoah’s mother.

"Sanoah's name is Hawaiian.  My mom, she came up with Sanoah's middle name, Violet," said Natasha earlier this week  "Sanoah Violet.  Her name means mist in the mountains.  And you know, she's in the mountains right now."

Seth is a firefighter in Oso.

Funeral arrangements  have not been set. The family wanted to wait until they found Sanoah, so grandmother and granddaughter can be buried together.

A fund has been set up to help the family.  Donations can be made at any Key Bank for the Jefferds/Huestis fund.
