An engineering review has found that the Alamo chapel, despite cracks in the historic structure, is safe.

Marty Sloan with Datum Engineers, in a May 31 report, indicated he walked on the roof and "detected no indication of weakness or instability."

The update were released Thursday by the group in charge of maintaining the historic mission in San Antonio, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas.

Patti Atkins, the DRT's president general, says the updated engineering report has been submitted to Gov. Rick Perry's office. The state owns the Alamo.

The Texas attorney general's charitable trust division this year ordered the DRT to provide, by July 9, documents on Alamo issues such as finances, engineering and maintenance.
