A Bryan family awaits the removal of a family member's body from an airplane wreckage in Afghanistan.

Authorities confirm that all 104 people on board the Afghan airliner were killed when the plane went down last week. NATO and Afghan soldiers finally reached the site of the crash, on a frigid mountain peak near the capital of Kabul.

Most of those on board were Afghans, but six Americans were passengers. Bryan resident, Sam Humphries said his brother Mark was aboard the plane. Mark was a road engineer for the New Jersey based Louis Berger Group.
