The body of the last victim from the Costa Concordia wreck almost three years ago is believed to have been found, Italy’s coast guard said Monday.

Officials have not yet identified the remains, NBC News reports, but a spokeswoman said it was “assumed to be the last victim, Russel Rebello,” an Indian man who had served as a waiter on the doomed vessel.

Thirty-two people died on Jan. 13, 2012, after the Costa Concordia ran aground in a shallow bay near the island of Giglio and listed sideways into the water. The wreckage, weighing in at 114,500 tons, was later right-sided and towed to Genoa for scrap.
