DARRINGTON - Nearly five weeks after the Oso landslide, Frank Hadaway says there’s a chance search teams will never find his missing brother.
 
"It was a devastating slide and it has been a month, so will they ever find him? Probably not," said Hadaway.
 
His brother, Steve Hadaway, was installing a satellite dish at a home on Steelhead Drive when the landslide hit. Hadaway, 53, and Kris Regelbrugge, 44, are the only two people still missing.
 
"They are missing their mom. We are still missing our brother,” said Frank Hadaway.
 
Hadaway and his family have helped search teams look for his brother. The family was hoping to find Steve and bring him home.
 
"He loved the mountains so maybe he is home, maybe that will be his resting place," said Hadaway.

On Monday, Snohomish County officials will discuss plans to end active search operations. As the cleanup process begins, passive search operations will continue.
 
At least 41 people were killed in the landslide.
