Cops Search for Possible Missing Person Near Gilgo Beach

Nassau, Suffolk and New York State police conducted a search Sunday for a possible missing person near Gilgo Beach following the discovery of an abandoned vehicle along Ocean Parkway.

The search included K-9, marine and aviation bureaus from various departments after the vehicle was found at about 2 p.m., authorities said. The potential missing person reportedly could be a woman from New York City. There was no description of the possible missing person.

No further details were available from police. The investigation is continuing.

The skeletal remains of four missing prostitutes were discovered on Gilgo Beach in December 2010. Six more sets of human remains were discovered along the parkway between Jones Beach and Oak Beach in March and April 2011.

Police believe some of the bodies to be victims of a serial killer, who to date remains at large.
