I'm really sorry to hear that...

Have the names of the missing persons been made available to the public?
The number of missing persons in Norway and Denmark did (luckilly) decrease (a lot) after the lists were made available on TV and Internet.

Many of the persons on the lists had made it back home safely, but the police didn't have 100% control on their missing lists.

I don't believe any lists have been published yet. It seems the US doesn't have as much to go on as Norway does at present. I'll be sure to update this thread as more information becomes available.

CNN has revised their number to "more than 2000 missing Americans". 37 Americans are known dead.

That is "good" to hear....

The numbers of missing Norwegians are down to 78 now, from around 1500 before they published the list.
And the official number of dead Nowegians did also go down to 12, from 21, so it's still possible that the US list will become (a lot) shorter as well.
Hopefully it will....
