SURFSIDE, Fla. — In the aftermath of the Surfside condominium building collapse, 150 people remain missing.

Here are some of the individuals who are unaccounted for after nearly a week of search-and-rescue efforts.

Linda March

This undated photo provided by Dawn Falco shows Linda March, who is still missing in the collapse of a partial building in Surfside, Fla. Falco said she and March had been talking on the phone until just two hours before the building crumbled. March rented Penthouse 4 in Champlain Towers South, the heartbreaking image now seen around the world with a set of bunk beds and an office chair still intact, yet precariously close to where the rest of the building was sheared off.

March is an attorney who moved from New York to South Florida during the pandemic.

She rented Penthouse 4 in the Champlain Towers South condominium building.

After the collapse, the penthouse's interior was exposed, with bunk beds and an office chair still intact, just inside the broken edge where the rest of the 12-story building crumbled and sheared away.

Another friend, Dawn Falco, said they had been talking on the phone just about two hours before the collapse.
