No Word For Family Of US Couple Missing In Wreck

WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. (AP) — The children of a Minnesota couple missing in the Italian cruise ship disaster are still waiting for word about their parents.

The family of Jerry and Barbara Heil of White Bear Lake, Minn., posted on their blog Monday that they continue to wait.

Searchers found two more bodies Monday in the capsized Costa Concordia, 10 days after the ship’s hull was gashed by a reef. So far, the bodies of 15 people have been found while 17 people remain missing.

The Heils are the only Americans missing in the wreck. Their children say they find comfort in seeing how hard the Italians are working to find their parents.

The family also says they hope the search finds more passengers “so their families can be reunited with their loved ones.”
