LA CROSSE - There have been many happy stories of families from Wisconsin finding out that loved ones in Haiti are safe.

However, the family of La Crosse native Ben Larson was not as lucky.

He was doing missionary work in Haiti with his wife and cousin.

All three were in the same building when the earthquake hit.

Larson, 25, was the only one who didn't get out, and he is presumed dead.
