    I saw Richard had started a thread for a different missing potential victim of the Amtrak derailment, but I could not find a thread for Robert. his family has been hard at work trying to find him.

    I was just coming to see if Bobby had a thread yet. One of his BILs is a friend of mine, so this is all over my facebook. I really hope he's somehow just unidentified in a hospital somewhere.

    Unfortunately, though it hasn't been officially confirmed, my FB strongly suggests that Bob Gildersleeve was the 8th body just recovered from the site. Obviously treat as rumor for now, but I'm sure.

    Missing Dad Confirmed Dead in Amtrak Wreck
    http://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/...303757571.html
    Missing dad Bob Gildersleeve, Jr. died in Tuesday's fatal Amtrak wreck, his company confirmed Thursday, two days after the Amtrak train he boarded in Baltimore speeded around a curve in Philadelphia and derailed.

    A cadaver dog led investigators to Gildersleeve's remains as workers were moving the wreckage from the crash site to a secure location in Delaware. His body was found in the "large amount of wreckage" of the first passenger car, fire officials said, raising the death toll to eight.
