Human Remains Found on Costa Concordia

Human remains have been found on the wrecked Costa Concordia, possibly answering what happened to the last two missing passengers of the cruise liner that ran aground off Italy’s Giglio Island in 2012, a spokesman for the head of Italy’s civil protection agency said Thursday.

Divers will try to recover the remains, which were found on deck 4, on Thursday afternoon, the spokesman said.

The discovery comes a week after engineers finally righted the ship, which capsized when it ran aground in January 2012, killing 32 of the 4,200 people on board.

The toll of 32 includes two people who were missing but presumed dead: Russel Rebello of India and Maria Grazia Trecarichi of Sicily.
