An undated photo provided by the Cleveland Museum of Natural History shows a cast of an upper jaw fragments and teeth of "Australopithecus deyiremeda". The fossil find in Ethiopia adds another twig to the human evolutionary tree, giving further evidence that the well-known "Lucy" species had company, researchers say. In a paper released Wednesday, May 27, 2015, by the journal Nature, Yohannes Haile-Selassie of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History and colleagues announce the new find and assigned it to a species they dubbed, Australopithecus deyiremeda . In the Afar language the second name means "close relative," referring to its apparent relationship to later members of the evolutionary tree.

The hunt for the missing picked up after a holiday weekend of terrible storms that dumped record rainfall on the Plains and Midwest, caused major flooding and spawned tornadoes and killed at least eight people in Oklahoma and Texas.
