CLEVELAND - The FBI and other agencies searched a field in Tremont for evidence Wednesday in the case of Christina Adkins, a Cleveland girl who went missing in 1995.
"We never close these types of cases," said Vicki Anderson, spokeswoman for the FBI. "Whenever we have a child that's gone missing and we're involved, we keep that case open until we have resolution to that case."
Crews descended on a wooded area of West 7th Street near Clark Fields for four hours but turned up nothing.
"They go in a line, so they go methodically through the woods, and they're literally cutting down brush and getting through and looking at the ground to see if there's any disturbed soil, evidence, remains," added Anderson.
Anderson said they were acting on information that has developed during the investigation.
"We don't just sit and wait for the phone to ring," said Anderson. "We continually work these and follow up on whatever we can."
Adkins was last seen on West 25th Street, about 1.5 miles from Wednesday's search area, on Jan. 11, 1995 when she was 18 years old and five months pregnant.
No human remains were found after a search for her body at a home on Vega Avenue and West 25th Street on Aug. 30.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Adkins is encouraged to contact the FBI at 216-522-1400.
