Firefighters say their search for bodies in the rubble of the collapsed Florida apartment block has finally ended, but one victim remains unaccounted for.

At least 97 people were killed when the 12-storey Champlain Towers South fell in the early hours of 24 June.

But the remains of 54-year-old Estelle Hedaya are yet to be identified.

Her family say the official end of the search has left them feeling helpless and worried she will be forgotten.

Nobody has been pulled alive from the rubble since the first hours after the disaster, and officials formally switched from a search-and-rescue mission to a recovery effort on 7 July.

Battling tropical storms and the risk of unstable debris, rescuers worked through more than 13,000 tonnes of broken concrete.

The Surfside site has mostly been cleared, with the rubble moved to a state warehouse for further inspection.
