ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: The search at sea for ferry passengers on the capsized South Korean ferry continued on Tuesday (April 22) with 185 still missing. Of the 476 passengers and crew on board, 339 were children and teachers on a high school outing. Only 174 people have been rescued and the remainder are all presumed to have drowned.
