Boston family holding out hope for relative missing after Berlin attack

BOSTON (WHDH) - A Boston family is hoping for the best as they wait to hear from a loved one who went missing after the terror attack in Berlin, Germany.

Fabrizia di Lorenzo, who is from Italy, was shopping at the Christmas market Monday when someone intentionally plowed a truck into the crowded market. She is cousins with the Frattaroli family, who own several Italian restaurants in Boston’s North End.

The family said the 31-year-old’s cellphone and other belongings were found at the scene and they are waiting on official word about what happened to her.

“We are in touch with our family in Italy and ask for prayers for Fabrizia and all those affected by this horrific violence,” the Frattaroli family said in a statement.
