FARMINGDALE - A family who believed the remains of a World War II soldier were buried at Pinelawn Cemetery learned his remains never made it to Long Island.

Christine and Theresa Miaskiewicz, who live in Massachusetts, say they have been traveling to their brother's grave at Pinelawn for 67 years.

According to Newsday, the sisters got a call from the Army in July. Officials told the family that there was a mix up and their brother's remains were in an unmarked grave in Bosnia.

The location is where the soldier's plane was shot down in 1944.

The family now plans to bury his remains when they are returned.
