This is so scary! A couple from Kentucky and siblings from New York are among the many people still missing after the terrorist attack at Brussels Airport on March 22. And although no Americans have been confirmed dead yet, the fact that these four can’t be located is terrifying!
Four Americans, Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski and Stephanie and Justin Shults have been declared missing after the terrorist attacks in Brussels on March 22. And as devastating as it is, these individuals are only a few of the MANY Americans still lost in the aftermath of the explosions. How horrible!
UPDATE: Sascha and Alexander Pinczowski’s mother confirmed on Facebook they died in the Brussels explosion, according to PEOPLE.
Siblings Sascha and Alexander were at Brussels Airport at the time of the two explosions inside a terminal on March 22. They have not been seen or heard from since. Husband and wife Stephanie and Justin are also missing after dropping Stephanie’s mother of at the airport. So far, the State Department revealed that at least 12 Americans have been injured in the attacks, but that number could always change as more victims are identified. And while the total death count remains unconfirmed, MANY Americans are still cited as missing.

Sascha and Alexander were on the phone with their family when the blasts went off. After that, their end of the line went dead, according to Dutch media reports. And while the two were reportedly preparing to fly back to the U.S., Stephanie and Justin are accountants who currently live in Brussels. “I was waiting in line to check in, and she was sitting in the seats with her husband waiting for me to finish… I have no idea where she is,” Stephanie’s mother, Carolyn Moore, revealed to NewsChannel5. Carolyn has tried reaching the couple on their cells, but their phones have been going straight to voicemail.
Alex is about 6-foot-1, with short brown hair and a beard. He’s also a diabetic. Sascha on the other hand is 5-foot-2 with long, dark brown hair and brown eyes. Sascha is a former student at Marymount Manhattan College and is currently a production intern at a design company in Chelsea, according to her LinkedIn profile. Their search has gotten so serious that their father, who lives in the Netherlands, is now traveling to Brussels to help find his children.
Justin is originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee while his wife is from Lexington, Kentucky. They met while attending graduate school at Vanderbilt University and moved to the Belgian capital in 2014. Mars, the company where Stephanie works as an accountant, is also helping in the search for the couple.
But amongst all of this horror and devastation, there is still hope. The families of Stephanie and Justin and the Pinczowski siblings can take comfort in the fact that survivors are still turning up in Belgian hospitals. “All they can really do is go from hospital to hospital looking at the list of people that have been identified as injured,” Carolyn’s sister, Betty Newsom said. And although Betty’s right, and it could be a slow process, there’s still a good chance that all four victims will be found.
