CANTON, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- State police and Oxford County officials continued their search in the 29-year-old cold case of Kimberly Moreau for the fourth day in a row.
Sgt. Mark Holmquist of the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit said Brian Enman' property has been cleared but they haven't found evidence in the cold case. Enman was one of the last people to see Moreau alive.
Instead of going back to Enman's property on Monday, police will take the day to regroup and analyze data collected during the search. They are planning to consult with the geologists from the University of Maine to decide the next course of action.
"We knew going in that this was going to be a long process. We didn't expect this to be short," said Kimberly's father Richard Moreau.
Investigators were joined by the Maine State Major Crimes Unit Police Evidence Response Team at the scene of Enman's property early Sunday morning. Geologists brought in ground-penetrating radar as the day continued.
State police are determined to bring Moreau home. Holmquist said he feels confident that they've brought the best and brightest to investigate this case over the course of the last four days. He says that's for a good reason, to bring Kim back to her family.
"Sooner or later we're going to get the right one, and we're going to finally get her," said Richard.
Police and firefighters used chainsaws and other tools to clear brush and overgrowth from the land on Saturday.
Sgt. Mark Holmquist of the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit said that the more specific search Sunday resulted from areas that the cadaver trained K-9s concentrated on during the Saturday search. Holmquist wouldn't say exactly how many areas of the property they are focusing on but said it is less than five.
"We are optimistic but we are trying to keep expectations on an even keel" said Holmquist. "This isn't the first search we've done in this case, we hope it's the last, but we are prepared if it isn't to continue on the investigation."
Holmquist stated that the search team is being aided by two University of Maine professors with a specialty in geology.
Officials will not release any details about the tip they received but Holmquist said it warranted going in front of a judge. "What we've done in the last couple days has narrowed our search" he said.
