Dear FOS11 Member,

In response to FOS11 member concerns about both the recent discovery of remains at Ground Zero and the news about newly identified victims from American Airlines Flight 11, we have been in contact with the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner and want to confirm the following information. 

There are no new protocols for the recovery of remains.  Family members do not have to resubmit DNA and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will continue to be the initial point of contact for families.  If you have any questions, please contact the OCME’s WTC Unit at (212) 447-7884.  In addition, FOS11 continues to be in contact with the Mayor’s Office and will provide information as it is made available.

We know that the release of this information continues to be difficult for family members and anyone connected with those lost on 9/11.  Please contact us at info@familiesofseptember11.org if we can be of further assistance.
