Finding out names of mountable devices

Tried on freebsd-questions without an answer. I suppose this is not
doable, but I'll ask here anyway.
If I plug in e.g. a USB thumb drive, which becomes, say, umass0.
Normally something like /dev/da0 will also be created and slices of that
device may be mounted. But is there a API for finding out what is the
corresponding block device for umass devices? The device driver writes
that to syslog, but reading logs for something like that is quite clumsy.
