Japanese nuclear power officials on Sunday announced that the bodies of two men, nuclear power plant workers missing since the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, were discovered last week, BBC reported.

The two men were found in Fukushima reactor No. 4, where they were working when the quake struck. Their bodies were found on Wednesday but the announcement was delayed until Sunday so that their families could be notified, according to the report.

"It is deeply regrettable that we lose two employees who were trying to protect the safety of the power plant from the earthquake and tsunami," the Tokyo Electric Power Company chairman said in a statement Sunday.
