Law enforcement officials have been searching the woods off Enneking Parkway in West Roxbury for evidence related to a woman who has been missing for a decade, Boston police said.
On Thursday, the search was in its second day in the woods next to the parkway, within the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Stony Brook Reservation.
The FBI and Boston police are investigating, police said.
“The Boston Police Department is conducting a search in the area of Enneking Parkway relative to an ongoing missing person investigation,’’ police said in a prepared statement Thursday. “The subject of the search is believed to be an adult female who was reported missing in Boston in October 2007.” The department did not release the woman’s name.
Around midday, a DCR excavator could be seen digging in the woods near a construction site. Police and FBI officials were on the scene. Two FBI officials were using shovels and one FBI official walked away from the scene with a trash bag.
Other vehicles on the scene included a Boston police crime scene response vehicle parked on the side of the highway.
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, said Ria Convery, a MWRA spokeswoman.
