"Unfortunately, we weren't able to directly prove a link between indoor tanning and an increased risk of skin cancer," said Dr. Matthew Mansh, who did the research while he was a medical student at Stanford University in California.
By Barbara Liston JACKSONVILLE, Fla.

The U.S. Coast Guard said the body of one presumed crew member was recovered.
