Burbank Woman Getting Closer to Answers in MIA Brother Case

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. - A Burbank woman searching for her brother may be getting closer to some answers. Terri Francisco-Farrell lost her brother, San, when his Air Force plane went down in November 1968.

She and her sister met with the POW and MIA Department Saturday in Spokane where they learned a team is en route right now to Vietnam. Intelligence there told American investigators they have found the ground commanders who were ordered to shoot down San's plane. They just might know where San's body rests.

"It's resolution for our family. We do know what happened, we are bringing him home. That alone for the past 45 years is the most awesome thing that ever happened," said Francisco-Farrell.

She told NBC Right Now she should know within a week whether her brother's remains have been found.

Around 150 people from around the northwest were at that meeting. Events like that are held all over the country where specialists meet with families. The government gives them updates in their cases and tells them what they're doing to find their lost loved ones.
