By The Associated Press

ATCHISON, Kan. (AP) ' Crews have suspended rescue efforts for three people missing since an explosion at a Kansas grain elevator that killed three workers and injured two.

Atchison City Manager Trey Cocking says the search was suspended Sunday while crews waited for more specialized equipment to help in the search at the Bartlett Grain Co. elevator. Cocking said earlier that the company had been weighing whether it was safe to send rescue teams into the facility, which sustained significant damage in the Saturday night explosion.

The family of one of the men who is unaccounted for waited Sunday at the site for news.

Gary Keil, of Salina, said his son, 34-year-old Travis Keil is a state grain inspector missing since the explosion. He said the family is praying for his safe return.
