Ohio Missing Woman Search Yields Remains
CLEVELAND (AP) - Human remains have been found in a renewed search in Cleveland for a woman who was pregnant and 18 when she disappeared in 1995.
The medical examiner's office confirmed the remains found Friday were human. There was no additional information on the remains.
Identification could take several weeks.
FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson says the search was part of a multi-agency investigation in the missing Christina Adkins case. She vanished Jan. 10, 1995.
The remains were found in a grassy, wooded area near an Interstate 90 ramp south of downtown Cleveland.
The FBI said earlier that the escape to freedom in May of three women held captive and raped in a Cleveland house over a decade prompted new tips in the case of Adkins and another missing woman.
