FBI, police to resume search for remains Monday

CEDAR BEACH - The FBI and police wrapped up their search for more remains along Ocean Parkway for the weekend.

Yesterday, FBI helicopters and special planes were spotted overhead taking imagery pictures of different areas on the north and south sides of Ocean Parkway.

Suffolk police divers finished their search of the waters at Hemlock Cove, which officials say hasn't yielded any significant finds. So far, Shannan Gilbert, the missing New Jersey prostitute whose disappearance last May set off the search, has not been found.

Since December, as many as 10 sets of human remains have been found along Ocean Parkway.

The first four sets of remains were identified as missing prostitutes. The second four sets of remains were found further east toward Oak Beach. Last week, a skull and a bag of bones were found in separate locations in Nassau County.

"We're waiting for the forensic analysis on the remains that have been recently found in Suffolk County, as well as those in Nassau," says Suffolk Police Chief Dominick Varone.

The search will resume Monday, when the FBI is expected to put a military-style Black Hawk helicopter with sophisticated-imaging technology in the air.
