ROME — Italian authorities say they found bone fragments during a search of the shipwrecked Costa Concordia when the ship was brought to port for scrapping.

Italy's civil protection agency said Wednesday it's not clear if the remains belong to the one person still unaccounted for from the disaster: Indian waiter Russel Rebello.

Rebello was one of 32 people who died when the Concordia struck a reef off Tuscany and capsized Jan. 13, 2012. The search for his remains resumed after the Concordia was towed last month to Genoa's port where it will be taken apart.

Civil protection officials said the fragments might also belong to Italian passenger Maria Grazia Trecarichi, whose partial, mutilated remains were recovered a few months ago.
