Search Resumes for Bodies of Two Children After Vigil on Alabama Coast
(2008-01-15)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Search crews are combing marshy coastal waters for an eighth day today after a candlelight vigil was held in memory of four young children allegedly tossed from a bridge by their father on January 7th.

The vigil was held last night near bayou docks where the bodies of two of the four were brought after being found near shore over the weekend.

The father, 37-year-old Lam Luong, is being held without bond at Mobile on four capital murder charges.

The children's mother, 23-year-old Kieu Phan, wept as she joined others in the candlelight service on the Alabama Gulf coast.

The bodies of a 3-year-old and his 4-month-old brother were recovered over the weekend.

The bodies of the last two victims, a 2 and a 1-year-old, are being sought as the search covers an area extending from the Alabama coast west to Pascagoula, Mississippi.
