Dragging operations on Chautauqua Lake have been suspended until test results are complete on possible evidence already found last week in the case of a missing Lakewood woman.
Divers and firefighters were on the water again Wednesday afternoon, covering some territory they were unable to get to earlier. The dragging has been focused in an area near the Long Point State Park marina.
District Attorney James Subjack said Wednesday that DNA tests on hair samples he took to the State Police crime laboratory in Albany has been "given top priority." But he also said results will not be returned for weeks.
Officials are trying to determine whether the hair may have belonged to Lori Ceci Bova, 26, who has been missing since June.
Lakewood-Busti Police Chief James Young said nothing new was turned up during the two-hour probe Wednesday, and the dragging has ended until the test results are known.
