Search for Colonial Parkway murder victims' remains called off

A planned search has been called off for the remains of two people slain two decades ago along the Colonial Parkway after officials capped the number of people who could participate.

Family members of victims Keith Call and Cassandra Hailey had arranged for cadaver-sniffing dog teams and dozens of other volunteers to search near the parkway June 5.

About 50 to 100 people had expected to participate. But the National Park Service limited the number of volunteer searchers to 15.

A National Park Service spokesman says the agency granted a dog-tracking permit. But the location of the search, the logistics, its proximity to the parkway and possible restrictions on the flow of visitors and traffic prompted the limit.
