SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The remains of the Utah teenager killed in a tsunami in January will return home this weekend.

Kali Breisch's body was identified through a D-N-A match last week and was cremated yesterday in Thailand.

Her body has been laying lost in a makeshift morgue in Thailand with thousands of other victims since the devastating tsunami.

Her father, Stuart Breisch and his wife have been in Thailand since last week. They plan to bring Kali's ashes back with them when they return home on Saturday.

Kali's family says they're relieved her body was found and says out of the five-thousand bodies in the morgue -- only four-hundred have been identified.

The Breisch family was on vacation when Kali was swept away by a tsunami back in December.
