James and Velvetia Tute

Book Cover: James and Velvetia Tute

James Tute, 56, and Velvetia Tute, 52, from Mission, Canada, went to the volcano the weekend of May 17-18 so Velvetia could paint the volcano. She was an artist and yoga instructor, and James worked on tugboats in British Columbia. They were last seen driving their Volkswagen van about 13 miles west of the volcano. Their bodies were never recovered.
