Church reunites photos with tornado victims

CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri church hopes it can reunite thousands of photos with survivors or relatives of tornado victims in Joplin. The church, in nearby Carthage, has some 8,000 photos that were scattered as far as 218 miles. At least a couple of days each week, a volunteer crew of 20 women gather at First Baptist Church of Carthage. They go through stacks of photographs looking for clues to the owners. The photos are being posted on Facebook as 'Lost Photos of Joplin' in hopes they can be returned.
