After two days of digging in the backyard of a Kansas City home for the remains of a missing woman, police called off their search Thursday, saying they were unable to find anything.
Police began searching the backyard of a home in the 9800 block of Hardesty Avenue on Wednesday as they investigated a missing-person case from 1993.
The search for Laura Mason, who was 45 when she disappeared on March 28, 1993, continued most of the day Thursday. But after two days, police said they were unable to locate anything.
“The area we were interested in searching was thoroughly examined,” Capt. Tye Grant, a spokesman for Kansas City police, said in an email. “The search has now ceased.”

Police had used shovels and a skid loader to search for Mason’s remains. She was last seen getting into a car with a male acquaintance outside the El Capitan lounge. The man said he dropped her off at 18th Street and Highland Avenue and she went to the Mutual Musicians Foundations.
She was never seen or heard from again.
