By  | 

BOWIE COUNTY, TX -- The FBI is in Bowie County, Texas Thursday assisting New Boston police in a nearly 15 year old cold case.

Police and members of an FBI evidence response team are conducting a ground search for human remains related to a case involving Ladana Renee Newton Wiley.

Wiley was 27 years old when she was last seen on new years day in 2000.

The search is centered on a location at the corner of Nelson and Griffin streets in New Boston, just north of I-30 near Hadaway Road.

There is no word yet on what prompted the search in the area this morning, where a house once stood.
