Washington Officials Search For Body Of Teen Missing Since 2009


By Paul Johnson

Seattle, Washington (CNN) - Police armed with searchers and dogs fanned out in a Seattle neighborhood on Sunday.
They were searching for the remains of a young woman who has been missing since 2009.
Kelsey Emily Collins vanished under suspicious circumstances.
Seattle's assistant police chief says Collins was forced into prostitution by a violent pimp, though officials have never named a suspect.
"We have strong reason to believe that she was murdered. We have seen or heard nothing, nor has her family, since early May of 2009, and we came across some fairly credible information that she may have been buried somewhere along here."
The search didn't turn up any remains.
