For the third straight day, Boston police detectives and forensic investigators will be digging through heavy brush on the Enneking Parkway Friday, searching for evidence that might show what happened to a woman who disappeared from Boston a decade ago.

Police started the onsite investigation Wednesday and were joined by the FBI’s evidence response team. Friday’s search in the Stony Brook Reservation will be conducted by Boston officers alone, officials said.

Boston police have not released information about what led them to start looking in the area, nor have they disclosed the missing woman’s name, except to say she was last seen around October 2007.

The investigation is continuing, police said.

The dig site is near an area that P. Gioioso and Sons Inc. has been using as a staging area for a Massachusetts Water Resources Authority project to install a water pipeline in Boston and Dedham, according to the MWRA.
