Italian authorities beleive they have found a missing victim of the Costa Concordia shipwreck.

The body, thought to be that of Indian waiter Russel Rebello was discovered by scuba divers near the third deck of the cruise ship.

The cruise ship was carrying more than 4000 holiday makers and crew, when it capsized after striking rocks in January last year, killing 32 people.

After lying on its side for more than 20 months, it was pulled upright last month in a 19-hour operation.
