Underwater Recovery Hanson Crew Site
The Underwater recovery of the Hanson Crew site was concluded on October 12, 2015. The recovery team completed the excavation and closed the site. Remains were recovered during the excavation.
On October 22, 2015, the Underwater Recovery Team presented plaques to Grado Civil Patrol, Grado Coast Guard, and the Grado Civil Service Office in acknowledgement of their contributions to the recovery of remains. City officials of Grado, Italy planned a larger press event in connection with the recovery but had to postpone due to the unavailability of the regional Italian Governor.
The remains were to arrive in Omaha, Nebraska on November 4, 2015 where they will be processed.
