Search for remains ends at 9/11 site

December 12, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

The expanded search for human remains at the former World Trade Center site is over for now.

Deputy Mayor Edward Skyler, in a memo to Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg, said that the city Medical Examiner's Office had finished sifting the last of nearly 15,000 cubic yards of material excavated since the renewed search for remains began in October 2006.

As a result, the city will shut down a Brooklyn facility it opened last December to analyze the remains. The city will convert that to a mobile unit that will be available as other parts of the site are excavated.
