Ohio missing woman search yields remains

CLEVELAND (AP) — Human remains have been found at the scene of a renewed search in Cleveland for a woman who was pregnant and 18 when she disappeared in 1995.

FBI spokeswoman Vicki Anderson says the medical examiner's office confirmed the remains found Friday were human. There was no additional information on the remains.

Anderson says the search was part of a multi-agency investigation in the Christina Adkins missing person case. She vanished Jan. 10, 1995.

The remains were found in a grassy, wooded area near an Interstate 90 ramp just 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.
