Divers back out in the water off Oak Beach

OAK BEACH - Suffolk police divers were back in the waters off Ocean Parkway yesterday looking for more possible remains or evidence. For about two hours during high tide, three divers equipped with metal detectors strategically searched under and around three docks just off Oak Beach where missing New Jersey prostitute Shannan Gilbert was last seen in May 2010. The disappearance and search for Gilbert led to the discovery of as many as 10 sets of human remains since December. Four of those remains have been identified as Craigslist prostitutes. Harold Jantzen, the deputy inspector of the Suffolk Police Marine Bureau, wouldn't say if his team was sent today to search for clues specifically connected to the Gilbert case, or to the larger investigation involving a suspected serial killer.Officials say yesterday's search didn't yield anything of significance. As of now, there are no plans to put the divers back into the water, but Suffolk police say they will continue the ground search some time soon.
