SEOUL, South Korea  — Two more bodies have been recovered from the western Bering Sea near where a South Korean fishing ship sank earlier this week.

An official from the company that owns the ship said Wednesday that the bodies appear to be from the ship lost Monday in the waters near Russia. One fisherman's body was recovered Monday and seven fishermen were rescued. More than 50 are missing.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because of office rules.

Furious relatives have blamed the company and the ship's captain for not doing enough to save their family members.

Officials from the ship's company said they were hanging onto a "glimmer of hope." But with continued rough seas and bad weather, there were dwindling expectations that the fishermen would be found.
