GILGO BEACH - Investigators are searching for a missing New York City woman at Gilgo Beach.

Police officers from both Nassau and Suffolk are at the scene, as are officers with the Suffolk Marine Bureau and state police.

Police say a caller phoned in at 11:20 a.m. on Sunday to report that items beloning to the woman had been found on Gilgo Beach. It remains unclear who called police.

Sources tell News 12 Long Island that a blue Toyota Prius, believed to belong to a missing New York City woman, was towed from the scene by cops. This prompted a search of the area by Nassau, Suffolk and State police.

The case is currently being handled by the Nassau County Police and they are releasing information sparingly. They have not yet identified the missing woman, or how long ago she may have disappeared.
