SARATOGA SPRINGS, N.Y. (AP) - Police say they've visited several upstate New York locations in an effort to locate the possible burial site of a 13-year-old girl who disappeared 26 years ago.          

The 13-year-old was last seen on her way to Saratoga Springs Junior High School. Her sudden disappearance dogged police for years. Last year, there was an apparent break in the long-cold case. NewsChannel 13 reported that police had identified a person of interest, Arthur Mason Slaybaugh, a corrections officer who is now deceased.

Police told NewsChannel 13 that they hope to use dogs that are specially-trained to locate cadavers.

Saratoga Springs police are hoping to coordinate their use of the dogs with police in Washington County who are continuing to search for the body of Jaliek Rainwalker.  

Investigators say they've interviewed nearly 100 people since the cold case was reopened two years ago.

SARATOGA SPRINGS — Last week, the anniversary of Tammie McCormick’s disappearance came and went with no new information on the 26-year-old missing persons case.

McCormick was 13 when she went missing after school April 29, 1986.

Police have not given up the investigation, but Saratoga Springs Police Department Investigations Lt. John Catone there has not been any new information on the case as of late.

“The person of interest is still the same, the locations of interest remains the same, and we continue to interview people who may have been associated with Tammie or the person of interest Arthur Mason Slaybaugh,” he said in a statement issued Wednesday.

Slaybaugh was a person of interest when McCormick initially disappeared and remains one, but he has since died.

Catone said a number of media outlets have reported on the ongoing case since the anniversary, but emphasized there is nothing new in the investigation.

This article says "new leads".  I guess "new leads" isn't the same as "no new information".  Regardless, I hope Tammie's remains can be recovered.
