The search included cadaver dogs. Searchers arrived at around 1:30 p.m. and left before 3 p.m. It's unclear what they discovered, if anything.
Bigcountryhomepage.com has also received reports from law enforcement that a second landfill was searched in Scurry County.
Colorado City's City Manager Pete Kampfer told KTAB's Tiffany Tatro it's not usually customary to do a second search of this nature. However, Kampfer said investigators deemed it appropriate.
Kampfer said the Texas Department of Criminal Justice brought in different dogs from the ones used during their first visit of the landfill.
When asked whether investigators returned to the landfill because of a lead, Kampfer said he could not comment. He instead repeated that investigators found it "appropriate."
Law enforcement combed through trash at Allied Waste Services in Abilene last Friday and law enforcement deemed the search "unsuccessful."
Kampfer says while dogs got two "hits" during that search, nothing has been confirmed as evidence in the case.
Trash from Colorado City is transferred to Abilene, Odessa, or Snyder, Kampfer previously told bigcountryhomepage.com.
