After hours of anxious searching relatives to-day learned that Thomas
McCormack, the young Bayonne man who was on the Titanic, was at Ellis
Island where he is being detained prior to his readmission to this

When the Carpathia docked last night Bernard Evers, a brother-in-law of
McCormack, and one of the latter's sisters were at the pier to meet him.
In some way they missed McCormack when he left the ship, and they spent
the night and most of the morning hunting for him.

As the morning wore on and they failed to get any trace of McCormack,
the searchers began to fear that the reports that he was rescued were
false. They were about to give up in despair when they learned that he
was at Ellis Island. They immediately notified Mrs. Evers and another
sister of McCormack of the good news.

McCormack is due to arrive in Bayonne about 4 o'clock this afternoon.
He left here six months ago to revisit his birthplace in Ireland and was
returning on the Titanic. Not being a citizen he had been sent to Ellis
Island by the U.S. officials until his credentials could be inspected.
