HERKIMER, N.Y. (AP) - Authorities say they're discussing the possibility of resuming the search for a 12-year-old central New York girl who was abducted and killed nearly 20 years ago.
Herkimer County District Attorney Jeffrey Carpenter tells the Observer-Dispatch
of Utica that his office and state police investigators have rekindled their discussions on tips that might one day lead to Sara Anne Wood's body.
Sara was walking her bike home in the Mohawk Valley town of Litchfield in August 1993 when she was abducted. Lewis Lent of North Adams, Mass., pleaded guilty three years later to killing the girl and later told authorities he buried her in the Adirondacks.
More than a dozen searches over the years have failed to find her.
Carpenter says the possibility of new searches hasn't been ruled out.
