Richford, Vermont - May 10, 2010

Vermont state police resumed their search Monday for Brianna Maitland.

Investigators looked for her body in a Richford gravel pit after receiving a tip. Maitland was 17 when she disappeared in 2004. She was last seen at work in Montgomery. Her car was found abandoned the next day.

Monday two dozen searchers scoured the area about three miles from where the car was found. They had help from two cadaver search dogs brought in from Connecticut.

"This specific area is a sand pit and we have permission from the land owner to search this area, it's a sand pit that's surrounded by a wooded area," said Sgt. Tara Thomas of the Vermont State Police.

Maitland's father helped search teams Monday.

Police didn't find any evidence. More searches are planned.
