Carmen Vargas-Rosa, a lifelong member of the Christian evangelical church at the center of the Harlem building collapse, said church members are still trying to find at least two tenants who have been missing since this morning’s disaster.

There are six apartments above the church housing about 20 people, she said, all of whom were members of the Spanish Christian Church. All morning, church members have been frantically working to account for everyone in the building.

Some thought to be missing turned out to be at work and school, and other tenants were confirmed to be at Mt. Sinai hospital and other area hospitals, Vargas-Rosa said.

“We know who was safe, but there are those who we don’t know anything about,” she said.
