Julissa Hernandez traveled from Texas. Her brother Frank was inside Pulse with his boyfriend.

She says the boyfriend was shot but recovering. However, she has not heard anything about her brother.

“We drove down. His boyfriend was there when it happened. His boyfriend got out but he didn’t. Nothing at all. Just waiting, checking every website they’ve given us calling every number, but nobody can tell us anything about him.”

The city of Orlando is updating a web pagewith the names of the victims as relatives are notified.
