We mourn their loss...
June 02, 2011

The Missouri Department of Public Safety recently announced that all individuals who had previously been reported as unaccounted-for have either been located or confirmed deceased and their next-of-kin notified.

Richard said: "The past two weeks have been tragic, heartbreaking, and devastating for our community The Highway Patrol's tireless efforts to find those who were missing will allow us to take one more step towards recovery. My heart goes out to all those who have lost family and friends - we are all mourning with you."
