The two bodies that have yet to be recovered from the highly volatile island in New Zealand where a volcano erupted last week were identified by police Tuesday as an Australian teenager and a tour guide.
New Zealand police said the bodies of Winona Langford, 17, of Sydney and New Zealander Hayden Marshall-Inman, 40, have yet to be accounted for.
The remains of the two are believed to be in the waters around the island, but officials called off the search due to storms in the forecast making for rough water conditions.
Langford's parents, Anthony and Kristine Langford, also died in the eruption, while her brother, Jesse, is being treated for severe burns at a hospital in Sydney, according to Sky News.
In a previously released statement from the Langford family, Anthony and Kristine Langford were described as “loving parents.”
"They will be greatly missed by all who knew them," the statement said.
The eruption last week killed at least 18 people, and authorities on Tuesday released the names of three of those who died: Australians Richard Elzer, 32, and Julie Richards, 47, and Sydney-based U.S. citizen Barbara Hollander, 49.
Of the 47 people on White Island on Dec. 9 when it erupted, 24 were Australian citizens and four others were residents of Australia.
"I don't think any one of us can begin to imagine what those families are facing in the coming weeks and months," Australia's foreign minister, Marise Payne, told reporters on Tuesday. “Here in places like Auckland, in Sydney, we're surrounded by Christmas and celebration, but they face tragedy and devastation."
Scientists have warned that White Island, which is the exposed tip of a mostly undersea volcano, is highly volatile, and has been venting steam and mud regularly. Another eruption on the island is still possible.
The operation to recover the bodies began last week, and military specialists were able to recover six bodies last Friday.
