Louisiana Family Assistance Center Closes Tomorrow

From an early August press release:

The number of names remaining on the official missing list has stayed virtually the same in the last month. With all leads exhausted on the remaining 136 names, it appears these are the people most likely never to be found. From a total of 13,400 missing reports, 13,260 have been resolved with 10,985 found alive, 859 confirmed as victims of the storms and 1,416 cases referred to other jurisdictions after being determined to not be from Louisiana. This amounts to a rate of 99 percent of the missing cases resolved.
Not all hope is lost. At least one name has been crossed off the latest list with a total of 135 still missing.

Peace.
