The search for 9/11 victims resumes. On Monday, more than 11 years after the attacks of September 11, 2001, New York City started sifting again through debris recovered from the World Trade Center to look for victim remains. It's the first such operation since 2010. Sally Regenhard still waits for remains of her son. She and some other victims' families lack confidence the search will be done right -- and want reasurrances from the city's chief medical examiner. (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) SALLY REGENHARD, MOTHER OF 9/11 VICTIM, SAYING: "We really are calling for an inspector general to be placed in the O.C.M.E (Office of the Chief Medical Examiner) office to really oversee what is happening there and why after eleven years, 1,000 people, including my son firefighter Christian Regenhard, remain missing at the World Trade Center site." Not all families agree. Charles Wolf lost his wife Katherine in the attack and supports the city's decision to resume the search. (SOUNDBITE) (ENGLISH) CHARLES WOLF, HUSBAND OF 9/11 VICTIM, SAYING: "They have pushed the envelope, they have developed new technologies for DNA testing - and so no, absolutely not. Absolutely not. They have done everything they could. They've been wonderful friends to the families." More than 1,000 families who lost loved ones in the attacks are without any physical remains of the ones who died, after suicide hijackers crashed into the twin towers on September 11, 2001.
