Divers search Wallkill River after body reports

Posted: Updated:

Police divers searched part of the Wallkill River Wednesday after a fisherman reported seeing a body in the water.

An exhaustive search along Route 208 uncovered electronics and furniture, but the case of missing Brooklyn woman Laura Garza was present among the authorities.

"It would mean everything to me to find something more in this case," says Investigator Jan Golding, of the New York State Police.

Garza was last seen leaving a Manhattan club on Dec. 3, 2008 with Michael Mele, a convicted sex offender from Orange County. Mele is in jail on a probation violation and has not been charged in Garza's disappearance.
