Suburban Philadelphia woman says husband’s ashes missing from luggage after flight to England

Posted: Updated:

PHILADELPHIA -- (AP) A suburban Philadelphia woman is searching for her husband's ashes, which she says went missing from her luggage after she flew to England to bury them in his hometown of Hull.

Angeline O'Grady, of Trumbauersville, says her husband, Brian, died of cancer in October. On Nov. 1, she says security screeners told her she could not take the ashes through airport security.

She says she was directed to the US Airways counter and put the ashes in her checked luggage. She told WCAU-TV that when she got off in England, the ashes were gone.

The airline told the station it's investigating and working with the Transportation Security Administration to figure out what happened. A message left with the airline by The Associated Press was not immediately returned.
