The search for the victims of the collapse of a high-rise apartment building in Miami County took place on Wednesday, when officials said 10 more bodies had been exhumed from under the rubble and 94 people were still missing.

Raide Jadallah, assistant chief of the Miami-Dade Fire Service, found additional bodies and human remains for family members at a personal briefing on Wednesday morning. The death toll now stands at 46, and officials are beginning to worry more about the prospect of finding survivors.

The latest search, rescuers said, will intensify work on the entire landfill site after the rest of the condominium building was demolished on Sunday night.

The crews “removed the pile significantly,” Jadallah said. “They were able to land in different areas to check.”

Jadallah also issued a warning that no new “gaps” have been found so far in the areas that were accessible for the first time since the demolition. Rescuers were hoping to find new pockets that could have been survivors.

However, Jadallah told the families that the search and rescue operation was ongoing and had not yet entered recovery mode.

“We’re not there yet,” he said.
