    An American husband and wife remained missing more than 24 hours after deadly blasts rocked Brussels, family members told NBC News.

    Justin and Stephanie Shults had just dropped off her mother at the Belgian capital's airport when two blasts killed at least 11 people in the check-in lounge.

    "Her mom is fine but no one has been able to contact Justin or Stephanie," Justin Shults' brother, Levi Sutton, told NBC News late Tuesday. He added that the State Department told him Tuesday afternoon that the pair were not on any casualty list and both their phones were going straight to voicemail.

    Justin, 30, is originally from Gatlinburg, Tennessee, while 29-year-old Stephanie is from Lexington, Kentucky, but moved to the Belgian capital in 2014, Sutton said.
