A Nashville man and his wife have been reported as two of the people reported missing in Belgium after a terrorist attack at Brussels Airport and subway.

Justin Shults is a Nashville local, who graduated from Vanderbilt and is originally from Gatlinburg. His wife, Stephanie Shults, is originally from Kentucky, but also received her masters degree from Vanderbilt.

Justin's brother, Levi Sutton, turned to Twitter to ask for prayers.

Following the attacks, Betty Gragg Newsome told CBS News that her sister, Carolyn Moore, was in Brussels to visit her daughter and son-in-law, Stephanie and Justin.

Gragg-Newsome told WKYT in Lexington that Moore had just spent a week with her daughter and was at the airport to catch her flight home when the attacks occurred.

Gragg-Newsome said her niece, Stephanie, had recently moved to Brussels for work.

Sutton tweeted the good news that Justin and Stephanie were not on the list of casualties. 

At least 34 people were believed to have been killed and 214 wounded in what appeared to be a pair of brazen terrorist attacks in the city which has remained on high alert since the Paris attacks.
