LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County fire officials say rescuers have recovered the body of a worker who had been missing since a warehouse collapsed Thursday in Landover.

The body was recovered about 8 a.m. Sunday at the warehouse. The victim’s identity will not be released until an autopsy is completed.

Employees at Recall, a document management company, told firefighters that a forklift accidentally struck a storage rack that toppled and created a domino effect Thursday night. The falling shelves struck support beams, then the roof collapsed and walls buckled.

The company said 12 employees were safely evacuated from the facility.
