WNBC is reporting that clothes and remains have been found in the area where investigators are searching for Shannan Gilbert, a Jersey City woman who disappeared in May 2010.
Investigators searching a Long Island marsh for clues in the Shannan Gilbert case have found remains and clothing, WNBC-TV is reporting.
Divers found the remains in knee-deep water in the marsh in Oak Beach, sources told the station.
The Suffolk County police, however, dispute that remains were found and says only that items that may be tied to the case were found, the report says.
Gilbert, of Jersey City, was last seen running from a home in Oak Beach in May 2010 in the area investigators are searching.
Her disappearance prompted a previous search of the nearby Gilgo beach area that ultimately resulted in the discovery of at least 10 sets of remains, but investigators have said they do not believe Gilbert's case is related to those.
