Search for human remains continues: DC Fire and EMS cadaver dog returns to help after injury

Authorities are continuing their search Thursday in an area near Gravelly Point were human remains were detected last month.

On July 11, U.S Park Police Officers were dispatched to the area of the George Washington Memorial Parkway near Four Mile Run for the report of possible bones found. After multiple searches, three human bones, including a skull, were recovered from the creek bed.

Officials searched an area of approximately 200 yards and suggested that the bones may have washed into the area during heavy storms.

Kylie, a D.C. Fire and EMS human remains detection dog who was critically injured two weeks ago during the search, was cleared to go back to work and returned with search crews on Thursday.

“It was fantastic seeing kylie after a couple weeks ago she was injured. Just seeing the quick turnaround and the work that the team did in the veterinarian's office park police and aviation to help her it’s just fantastic seeing her out here," said Scott Brecht with the U.S. Park Police.

Authorities thought the storms from last month could have carried the initial remains down the watershed where the original bones were found.

Search team members told FOX 5 the location would have been the farthest point the remains could have originated. 

However, after several hours search teams found nothing.

Crews sent DNA samples from the remains for testing. We are still waiting on those results.

Right now, authorities are still investigating this matter.
