The body of a missing Christian filmmaker has been found in the ruins of the collapsed Hotel Montana in Haiti.

The State Department has confirmed the body of David Hames was recovered.

Hames had been working on a project for the Christian children's ministry, Compassion International.

Dan Woolley, a colleague who was near Hames when the earthquake struck the island nation, was rescued after 60 hours, sparking hopes that the filmmaker too might be found alive. However, hopes of finding Hames dwindled as the days passed.

"We all know David loved Jesus and we know that he is safe today, at home with his Heavenly Father," said family spokesman Melanie Dobson. "Now we will band together to care for his sweet wife and their two adopted children."

Compassion International's video production manager, Ric Sieben, said Hames loved being involved with his kids and his church.
