Crews searching for 2nd person's remains in Midland take day off

MIDLAND COUNTY, TX (KWES) - Midland County Sheriff Gary Painter says crews searching for the remains of a 2nd person took the day off today to get some rest and relax.

Authorities reached the bottom of the first pit on Friday without finding any remains.

This comes after the remains of a female were found in that pit last weekend.

Painter says they believe there is still another body somewhere in that area and that they will search a 2nd and 3rd pit on that property.

They've also called in two cadaver dogs to help in the search.
