The list was compiled by the FBI, while the number of confirmed dead still stands at 115, The Associated Press reported. The number of dead is expected to rise.

“We also know that once those names come out, it can and will cause pain for folks whose loved ones are listed,” Police Chief John Pelletier said in a statement, according to the AP. “This is not an easy thing to do, but we want to make sure that we are doing everything we can to make this investigation as complete and thorough as possible.”

Officials have asked anyone who knows someone on the list — which was validated by the first and last name of the missing person and if the person who reported them missing left contact information — to reach out to the authorities.
