New Zealand police today stopped the operation in search of two missing White Island volcanic victims.

A total of 47 people, mostly Australian tourists, were on the island when it exploded on December 9 and 25 were still hospitalized. Most victims are still in critical condition.

So far authorities have found 16 of the 18 dead bodies believed to have been killed at the popular tourist destination. The two remains have not been found.

“The search for two remaining victims of the Whakaari or White Island eruption has been stopped,” police commissioner Andy McGregor said today.

“New Zealand police confirmed another death in the hospital resulted in the death of 19 people, including two who were missing”

“Unfortunately no recent clues have been found so far”, he said.

On Monday, police confirmed another death in the hospital resulted in the death of 19 people, including two who were missing.

Police said the victim’s family had been informed of the decision to stop the search but were ready to act if new information was received.
