Former Warren resident unaccounted for as search for survivors continues at site of Florida condo collapse

65-year-old Judy Spiegel lived in Warren when her husband served as CEO of Trumbull Memorial Hospital.

SURFSIDE, Fla. — Authorities in Florida say that their efforts are still a search-and-rescue operation at the site of a partial condo collapse, but no one has been found alive since hours after the collapse on Thursday.

One of those still unaccounted for in the collapse has Northeast Ohio ties.

65-year-old Judy Spiegel has not been found yet. Judy used to live in Warren when her husband served as CEO of Trumbull Memorial Hospital, according to the Cleveland Jewish News.

Both of Judy's children spoke to NBC's Andrea Mitchell on Monday, saying they are not giving up hope that she will be found. 

"We have been out every day," said Rachel Spiegel. "We spent a lot of time at the press tent walking around, walking the boardwalk. It's really horrifying. The worst thing you've ever seen."

Judy's son, Josh, added that he and the rest of the family will stay at the scene of the collapse every day until they learn the fate of their mother.  

Rescuers searching for a fifth day for survivors on Monday used bucket brigades and heavy machinery as they worked atop a precarious mound of debris. The pile is composed of pulverized concrete, twisted steel and the remnants of dozens of households.  

Eleven people have been confirmed killed, and more than 150 others are still missing in the community of Surfside, just outside of Miami. The collapse of the building left layer upon layer of intertwined debris.
