A Kentucky town's last missing person was found dead after tornadoes tore apart the town last week.
Searchers found the body of 13-year-old Nyssa Brown, the last missing person in Bowling Green, Kentucky, on Thursday in a briar thicket. The recovery of the body came days after a tornado killed her entire family, including her parents, three siblings, and her grandmother, when it destroyed their home. The town initially reported over 200 people missing, all of whom have since been accounted for.

"We wish the outcome had been different," police spokesman Ronnie Ward said when thanking the "countless" people who participated in the effort and asking for prayers for the Brown family.
A neighbor expressed shock that the entire family was wiped out by the powerful storms that gripped the region and claimed at least 88 lives via tornadoes that rolled through six states.
“I can’t imagine a whole family just being gone in the blink of an eye,” Jennifer Venetta said, adding, “I’m glad that they’ve located her and the rest of her family. You know, they can all be together.”

Seventy-seven people were killed by the storms in Kentucky, and one person remains missing, Gov. Andy Beshear reported Friday.
President Joe Biden, who has already authorized federal aid to more than a dozen counties affected by the storms, traveled to the Bluegrass State on Wednesday to assess the damage.
