Costa Concordia cruise ship reached the end of its final voyage.The cruise ship, which ran aground in January 2012 off Giglio Island with more than 4,200 passengers aboard, was eased into a dry dock at the port for salvage. Refloated by salvage crews earlier this month, the rusting hulk docked at Voltri port in the Italian city of Genoa early Sunday. It managed to make the four-day journey in a convoy of vessels from Giglio to Genoa without major incident, despite one night of storms. According to civil protection chief Franco Gabrielli, strong winds hampered the delicate maneuvering needed to get the ship into the dry dock. The ship will be searched for the remains of Russel Rebello, a 33-year-old waiter who is the only victim still missing in the tragedy. A total of 32 people were killed in the disaster. Searches for Rebello are also underway in Giglio at the site where the ship had rested for the past 30 months.
