    A sad follow-up to the photo I posted last week: The body of 16-month-old Skyular Logsdon, believed missing in the Joplin tornado, was identified Sunday using DNA, family members said.

  2.   Rusty Burton found important papers and a stuffed bear he won for his grandson as he sifted through the remnants of the child’s home Tuesday in Joplin. Family members are frantically searching for 16-month-old Skyular Logsdon; the boy disappeared during Sunday’s tornado. Skyular’s parents, Carol Jo Tate and Cordero Logsdon, were both injured and are hospitalized in Pittsburg, Kan. “I’m starting to lose hope,” Burton said. “But I don’t want to think about that.” The family rejoiced when the boy was not found at a temporary morgue; they’re also looking through hospital logs. Burton keeps a photo on his cellphone, ready to show to anyone who may have seen the boy. Post-Dispatch photo by Robert Cohen • rcohen@post-dispatch.com
