(KSL News) In his news conference this morning, Robert Murray said he was doing everything possible to communicate with the families of the missing miners.

"We have had an interpreter there all along. I've had a member of the Mexican consulate there all along. I've had outside consultants there that are bilingual all along," he said.

However, one family member disputes that statement.

Maria Buenrostro is trapped miner Manuel Sanchez's sister. She's come to Huntington from Nebraska to be with her family. Today she talked about what happened when Murray met with the families.

She says Murray got angry with relatives' questions and walked out. She also says there was no interpreter for the three Spanish-speaking families.

Buenrostro says the families just want the truth. She said, "If there's nothing they can do about it, you know, just tell us so we know what to expect when they bring them out."

Murray's response to that was, "You can't make everybody happy."
