Hames was working in Haiti for Compassion International with Dan Woolley last month when the earthquake hit. Woolley was rescued from the rubble of a Port-au-Prince hotel after spending 60 hours in an elevator shaft.
Compassion International spokesman Stephan Archer said Tuesday that the agency is waiting for results of a forensic examination to identify recently found remains at the site. Archer says according to Hames' family, clothing from the remains matched what Hames was wearing.
