GROSETTO, Italy, April 17 (UPI) -- Divers in Italy are still looking for the last two victims of January's Costa Concordia disaster off the coast of Tuscany, officials said Tuesday.

Five bodies recovered months after the ship struck a rock formation have now been positively identified through DNA tests, officials told the Italian news agency ANSA.

The five included on-board musician Giuseppe Girolamo, who reportedly gave up his place in a lifeboat to a child, two Germans and two Americans.

The Germans were identified as Christina Mathi Ganz and Norbert Joseph Ganz. The Americans were Barbara and Gerald Heil.

A total of 32 people died in the cruise ship disaster.
