Police said Thursday they have concluded the search for missing Hallandale Beach woman Lynda Meier's remains near a canal in Miami Gardens without finding anything.
Hallandale Beach police said their investigation led them to an area northwest of a pond near the Snake Creek Canal earlier this week as they continued to search for Meier, 40, who was last seen June 4, 2010.
Cadaver dogs alerted crews to a 15-by-15-yard area, but after sifting through the dirt in the area, they found no evidence in the case, police said Thursday afternoon. Investigators said the search was not in vain because they needed to rule out the area.
The search continues for Meier, whose credit cards were used at a Miami Lakes Walmart store shortly after her disappearance by two women claiming to have gotten them from Dallas King, according to police. Investigators said Meier had no connection with King, but she did have a relationship with a friend of his, Antwan Kennedy.
King and Kennedy have been named people of interest in Meier's disappearance.
