Ms. Gianacaci is the second student found in two days. Courtney Hayes' family announced  their daughter was recovered yesterday (pictured top row - left). Two other Lynn University students are still missing along with two of their professors. This from Christine's family:
We’re saddened, but we're also blessed that she’s coming home. But we’re not going to be happy until all remaining Americans in that hotel are brought home," said John Gianacaci, Christine's father.
The Gianacaci family were first told that their daughter was "safe and rescued" right after the Haiti earthquake, but the information turned out to be tragically incorrect. Eight members of the Journey of Hope mission from Lynn University returned home unhurt.
