Missouri releases list of missing after tornado
The US state of Missouri has released a list of more than 230 people missing since a devastating tornado struck the city of Joplin on Sunday.
But the list is shrinking as people are located, and officials hope others have simply failed to contact relatives.
The tornado killed at least 125 people, injured 750 and wrecked as much as a third of the city, making it one of the most destructive in US history.
US President Barack Obama plans to visit Joplin on Sunday.
On Thursday, the Associated Press found Sally Adams, 75, alive and well.
Neighbours rescued her after Sunday's tornado, but she had lost her mobile phone and was unable to contact her family, who reported her missing to authorities.
Another series of tornadoes struck Oklahoma, Arkansas and Kansas on Tuesday and Wednesday, killing at least 16 people.
