No U.S. personnel missing after Japan quake

Department of Defense spokesmen said Monday that no military or civilian personnel are missing as a result of last weekend's tsunami in the Pacific Ocean.

"We are not aware of anybody missing to date," Navy Commander Leslie Hull-Ryde, Department of Defense press spokeswoman for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs for East, South and Southeast Asia.

"All military personnel and their families are 100 percent accounted for," said Petty Officer Kenneth Hendrix, U.S. Navy, public affairs officer for the U.S. 7th Fleet.

Other local media outlets have reported that the son of a Champaign woman and his two children were missing following the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
