The Vatican opened two tombs Thursday to see if the body of a girl missing since 1983 was hidden there and ran into a new mystery when nothing was found, not even the bones of two 19th century princesses supposed to be buried there. Experts were looking for the remains of Emanuela Orlandi, the daughter of a Vatican clerk who failed to return home following a music lesson in Rome. Princess Sophie's tomb led to a large empty underground room and no human remains were found in Princess Carlotta's tomb, Gisotti said.The two tombs were opened in the presence of the Orlandi family and descendants of the princesses.
