Missouri Department of Public Safety Deputy Director Andrea Spillars said Tuesday that 10 people remain missing. Miss Spillars said two new names were added to the missing list Monday, but four people were removed once officials learned they were alive.

It’s not known how many people in all died in the May 22 storm.

But Miss Spillars said the next of kin have been notified for 120 people confirmed dead from the storm. She said the identities of 19 were confirmed Monday.

Officials have said 146 sets of remains were taken to a temporary morgue but cautioned that more than one of those could be from the same person.


Egyptian exec faces sex charges at hotel

NEW YORK — A businessman and former chairman of a major Egyptian bank faces charges of sexually abusing a maid at a luxury Manhattan hotel, just weeks after the arrest of a former International Monetary Fund chief on similar allegations.

Mahmoud Abdel Salam Omar was arrested on Monday and is accused of sexually abusing the maid at the Pierre, a luxurious hotel near Central Park and Fifth Avenue on the Upper East Side, police said.

The maid was called to Mr. Omar’s room Sunday night to drop off tissues, police said. But once the maid was inside the 74-year-old’s room, police said, Mr. Omar would not let her leave and touched her inappropriately. The encounter was not reported until Monday, police said.

Paul Browne, a spokesman for the New York City Police Department, said detectives found the complainant to be credible.

Mr. Omar was held Monday night at a police precinct and transferred Tuesday morning to a booking facility near a Manhattan courthouse.
