OAK BEACH - An FBI plane and a Black Hawk helicopter scanned the brush and sand taking high resolution photographs in Gilgo Beach today.

Officials say the pictures along Ocean Parkway are similar to those taken last week. Investigators hope the high-tech imaging system will provide clues possibly missed by the human eye.

Suffolk and Nassau police say their ground search for more bodies and evidence is on hold until the FBI is finished conducting its flights.

Investigators say they will continue to analyze four unidentified bodies and two sets of remains found in recent weeks. They say none of the remains appear to be that of missing New Jersey prostitute Shannan Gilbert, 24, who sparked the initial search.

Ten sets of human remains have been found since December.
