SURABAYA, Indonesia - Three more bodies from the AirAsia flight QZ8501 search site have been identified, police said on Friday.

The bodies of stewardess Khairunnisa Haidar, passengers Grayson Herbert Linaksita and Kevin Alexander Soetjipto, were identified based on fingerprints and medical records, police said at a press conference.

Experts at the disaster victim identification (DVI) team were on Friday morning identifying eight bodies at police hospital Bhayangkara in Surabaya, the capital city of East Java province.

Earlier, the identity of passenger Hayati Lutfiah Hami was confirmed, and her body was buried by her family on Thursday.

Head of National Search and Rescue Agency H. Henry Bambang Sulistyo said that search operation continued on Friday.

To facilitate the operation, one tanker ship owned by the Indonesia's upstream oil and regulatory body, or SKK Migas would sail to the sea to supply oil for rescue ships, said Sulistyo.
