(Newser) – The last unaccounted-for body from the Costa Concordia cruise ship that sank off the coast of Giglio, Italy, in January 2012 may have finally been found, Reuters reports. The Italian coast guard said today it believed that recovered remains were those of Russel Rebello, an Indian waiter who worked on the ship. Workers reportedly found the remains in a cabin on the eighth deck while dismantling the vessel in Genoa, where it had been towed in July, the AP reports. Authorities thought they had found Rebello's remains back in August, but those turned out to be lamb bones, according to Italian media. The sinking of the Costa Concordia killed 32 people.
