Search for missing continues in Philippines

Information about loved ones hard to obtain in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan that left 4,000 people dead.

    More than 4,000 people are dead and over 1,500 are still missing after Typhoon Haiyan devastated the central Philippines nearly two weeks ago. The search for the missing is a long and frustrating process that is now under way in the city of Tacloban. And as Al Jazeera's Harry Fawcett reports, many families do not know where to turn to locate their loved ones.
