GIGLIO ISLAND—Divers found a 17th body in the wrecked cruise ship Costa Concordia Saturday, leaving 15 people still missing, authorities said.

Italy’s civil defense organization said the woman’s body had been located on Deck six, in the submerged part of the vessel and was being brought out.

The Costa Concordia ran aground on January 13 on rocks with some 4,200 people, including 296 Filipino crewmembers, aboard and is lying on its side off the Tuscan island of Giglio.

Of the 17 bodies found, 14 have been identified.
