I want to find my wife with all my effort

(by Mr. Haruo Teranishi, 65 years old,  Otsuchi-cho, Kamihei-gun, Iwate Prefecture )
I was in Saitama City on business when the earthquake occurred. I returned in a hurry, but I found my house washed away. Currently I am staying at my daughter’s. My wife is still missing. I went and checked around many evacuation centers, but could not find her. I am going to check around the morgues in the area. I know it would be very difficult considering the extent of the damages, but I want to find her with all my effort.
