Cooper, Francisca
Hi. I'm currently looking for a close relative who is missing in Thailand after the tsunami struck. Her name is Francisca Cooper. She is caucasian, blond wavy hair, 1.70 mts tall, athletic, 26 years old, chilean, and was spending her honeymoon with her husband Mr. Aurelio Montes at the Princess Resort in Phi Phi Island. She has a small scar at the front base of her neck. Her whole family is really desperate, and we don't know if she's alive or conscious. What we do know is that she doesn't know much English, so we guess it won't be easy to identify her once they find her. Update: Just wanted to let you know that the remains of Francisca Cooper have been found. She is no longer missing. Thank you.
