The United States says it is searching for fewer than ten Americans who remain unaccounted for in Japanese areas affected by the March 11 earthquake and tsunami.
State Department spokesman Mark Toner says only one U.S. citizen has been confirmed dead from the disaster.
He says thousands have been accounted for but that officials were still dealing with less than ten cases of missing Americans.
The body of 24-year-old English teacher Taylor Anderson was discovered earlier this week, making her the first fatality of a U.S. citizen in Japan.
