L.I. Police to Resume Search for Missing NJ Sex Worker

Police also theorize that Shannan Gilbert's disappearance is not connected to those of the other women.

Police on Long Island are resuming their search for a New Jersey sex worker whose disappearance led to the eventual discovery of 10 bodies along a remote barrier beach.    

A police spokesman says investigators will reopen their search for Shannan Gilbert based on new information received yesterday. He did not say when the search would begin.     

Gilbert disappeared in the area in May 2010 after apparently meeting a client she had booked through Craigslist.     

The decision comes as Suffolk County Police Commissioner Richard Dormer revealed that detectives now think that one person may be responsible for the 10 deaths.

He previously said as many as three killers may be responsible.  

Dormer declined to detail reasons for the change in theory, but notes all victims appear linked to the sex trade.
