By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Reuters) - Two people remained unaccounted for on Friday in the wake of an apparent gas explosion that destroyed four New York City apartment buildings and injured 19 people, police said. The blast appeared to have been gas-related, New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said. Private gas and plumbing work was going on in one of the buildings, and Con Edison utility inspectors on the scene an hour earlier had determined the work was not satisfactory. "We are looking into two individuals who are apparently unaccounted for," said a New York Police Department spokeswoman.
