LONGMONT, Colo. (CBS4) – A family in Longmont is looking for any kind of communication that their family in the Philippines is still alive after the typhoon.

Philippines native Cherlina King is desperately searching for information about her 27-year-old sister Josephine and her family whose home was hit hard by the typhoon.

King spends her time scouring photos and videos of the area along for her missing loved ones.

“I’m just focusing on the faces to see if that’s them,” said King.

Josephine, her husband, Victor and their two children lived in one of the towns hit hardest by the storm.

Winds up to 230 miles an hour slammed into the coastal town near Tacloban knocking out power and phone lines making it impossible to communicate.

King says media coverage of the disaster is making it hard to hold on to hope.

“I’m watching the news and watching all the email and I feel so helpless. I don’t know what to do,” said King.

King continues to broadcast her sister’s image on the Internet hoping to find her.

“Not know if she’s alive or not I’m just hoping with this photo that someone will see her,” said King.
