Intensive search for tsunami victims turns up 32 bodies | Kyodo News

A total of 32 bodies were found Friday, the first day of a three-day intensive search by Japan and the United States for those still missing three weeks after the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the Defense Ministry said.

The Japanese Self-Defense Forces and the U.S. military recovered 28 bodies, and the Japan Coast Guard found four in the disaster-hit northeastern part of Japan.

The death toll from the March 11 disaster tallied by the National Police Agency as of 9 p.m. stood at 11,734 in 12 prefectures while the number of missing people reported by their relatives to police totaled 16,375 in six prefectures.

It does appear that most of the missing were indeed washed out to the sea and will never be buried by relatives...
