Description: This collection of material documents one family’s search for a missing relative.
Context: The attack on the World Trade Center touched not only the occupants of the buildings but their friends and relatives as well. Jeff Wiener worked for Marsh Risk Technologies and had an office on the 96th floor of the north tower—the point of impact for the first hijacked jet.
At the moment of the attack Jeff's parents were driving north on the New Jersey Turnpike from where they could see the towers. They immediately called their daughter, Robin. She drove from Washington, D.C., to New York to join the family in the search for her brother. The morning of the 12th, Robin, Jeff's wife, parents, and other family members began distributing missing person posters, visiting hospitals, contacting police, and checking with relief organizations. Sadly, they never found Jeff alive.
Jeffrey and Heidi Wiener Less than a month before the attack, Jeffrey Wiener and his wife Heidi were photographed standing on the rooftop of their Manhattan apartment house.
List of hospitals contacted Hoping that Jeff Wiener was injured and perhaps unconscious, the Wiener family contacted all the area hospitals keeping meticulous notes as they called.
