Drawing further scorn from Japanese regulators, Tokyo Electric Power Co. has said it cannot find a number of subcontractor employees who worked at the Fukuhsima Daiichi nuclear plant in the early days of the crisis. The utility recently checked the radiation exposure of nearly all of the 3,639 people who worked at the site between the station blackout and March 31, but TEPCO said 69 could not be located.

Radioactive suits improperly disposed
The Yomiuri Shimbun
FUKUSHIMA--Twelve protective suits and masks--including one suit on which a slight amount of radioactivity was detected--were found to have been improperly disposed of in Tamura, Fukushima Prefecture, which is located near the 30-kilometer exclusion zone of the Fukushima No. 1 nuclear power plant.
The Tamura city government received a report from a citizen on April 6 that the suits were abandoned at a site along National Highway Route 288.
Government officials found 10 suits, masks and gloves discarded on the ground that day. Two more suits were found disposed of April 12 and on Friday, respectively, at the same location. The government checked the amount of radioactivity and detected radioactive emissions at a level of about 4,000 counts per minute from one of the suits
