Lopez, who was attending a birthday party with Hermond and her husband, said Hermond left the restaurant to help a woman trying to rescue her cat from a nearby pet store.
The remains of 39-year-old Eddison Hermond were recovered in the Patapsco River near the Baltimore County line, the Howard County Police Department said.
The Howard County government says fire and police officials answered 1,122 calls between 3:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m. Sunday.
Hermond is a sergeant with the National Guard and an Air Force veteran, according to officials.
The flooding has caused buildings to collapse and cars to be washed away.

Eddison Alexander Hermond, 39, is missing after flash floods swept Ellicott City, Md. on Sunday night (May 27). Searchers scouring the Patapsco River near the historic town said Tuesday, May 29, that they have found Hermond's body. Their hope: to pull together as a community again after the second awful flood.
Simon Cortes, owner of La Palapa Grill & Cantina, said it's "a awful time", and his business took on about a foot (30 centimeters) of water.
Others are stretched to the breaking point by the floods, which tore up streets and swept away dozens of cars in the quaint downtown of historic 18th and 19th century buildings, which sit in a ravine some 13 miles (20 kilometers) west of Baltimore.
Hermond and his friends went to help, and that's when, they said, he was pulled under and didn't resurface, Gardner added.
