PHILADELPHIA—A suburban Philadelphia woman is suing US Airways, saying her husband's ashes went missing from her luggage as she flew to England to bury them in his hometown of Hull.

Angeline O'Grady, of Trumbauersville, Bucks County, said her husband, Brian, died of cancer in October 2011. She says Transportation Security Administration officials told her before her flight the following month that she couldn't take the ashes through airport security at Philadelphia International Airport.

She said she was directed to the US Airways counter and put the ashes in her checked luggage. She said when she got off in England, the ashes were missing.

US Airways spokesman Andrew Christie said an internal investigation didn't uncover any information indicating that the airline is responsible for the loss of the ashes.
