Concerns are growing among anguished families that the bodies of those who died in the sinking of a South Korean ferry may never be found, as search teams suspended work Saturday because of bad weather.The confirmed death toll stood Saturday at 187, with 115 unaccounted for -- many bodies are believed trapped in the ferry that capsized on April 16 with 476 people on board.That could be exacerbated if the sea is churned by the gathering storm, scattering bodies.Dozens of other vessels and helicopters have been scouring the site and beyond, with the search operation expanded up to 60 kilometres (40 miles) from the scene of the disaster.It took divers working in difficult and dangerous conditions more than two days to get into the sunken ferry and two more days to retrieve the first bodies.
