"My cousin and my niece are still among the missing… someone said they were airlifted out but there are no traces…please let me know if you’ve seen them!" wrote Sabrina Ottaviani on a Facebook forum, above a photo of her relatives.

The special Facebook page dedicated to the Costa Concordia was created after a British dancer who worked on the cruise liner used the social network to urge people to pray for her before she was rescued.

"My name is Rose, it’s Friday 13th and I’m one of the last survivors still onboard the sinking cruise liner off the coast of Italy," she wrote above a photo of herself stuck in the dark on the ship before she was airlifted to safety.
