Search for remains resumes on LI beaches

Investigators said they found nothing new after resuming their search for victims of a potential serial killer on Long Island Tuesday.

State and Suffolk County police say FBI aerial photos prompted them to return to the island's south shore.

Investigators would not say whether the images provide more evidence.

Police fanned out east of the previous search areas, where they have found the remains of 10 people since December.

They searched an area of the Robert Moses Causeway on Tuesday. The highway is just up the road from Ocean Parkway.

Police believe a serial killer may be responsible for the deaths of at least four prostitutes whose bodies were found in the area. Authorities suspect other killers may have also left victims along the remote parkway, going back at least a decade.

The first bodies were found as authorities searched for missing Jersey City prostitute Shannan Gilbert. Her remains have not been found.
