AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The son of an Augusta yoga instructor missing in Nepal since the April 25 earthquake says there’s no new information on the search for her.

Reports say emergency workers recovered the bodies of 60 people in the Langtang Valley, near Kathmandu. Dawn Habash was not among them.

The Kennebec Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1ReQTpD ) an online fundraising effort raised nearly $24,000, which Yasmine Habash says will pay for searches and supplies.

Khaled Habash said Wednesday his sister Yasmine, who left for Nepal on Sunday with her boyfriend to search for their 57-year-old mother, updates him twice a day via email.

Dawn Habash was last seen on the day of the earthquake by a hiking companion in the area of Langtang. More than 7,500 people died in the 7.8 magnitude quake.
