Police search site with dogs

CRISFIELD -- Police plan to return next week to a property on Canal Drive outside Crisfield after a cadaver dog hit on a spot in the yard Friday, said 1st Sgt. Stanley Harmon of the Crisfield Police Department.

Officers went to the property as part of an ongoing investigation into the October 2007 disappearance of Gordon Nelson Sr., Harmon said.

Altthough nothing was found on Friday, officers plan to return to conduct a more extensive search, he said.

At the time he was reported missing, Nelson lived on Village Drive inside the city limits, but he previously lived on Canal Drive which is outside town near Janes Island State Park.

Police consider his disappearance to be suspicious, Harmon said. Nelson was last seen at the local Veterans of Foreign Wars post.
