CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The search for the remains of a missing 13-month-old Wyoming boy is set to start daybreak Tuesday at a Colorado landfill.
Capt. Linda Gesell of the Laramie County Sheriff’s Office says about 30 people a day from her department and the Wyoming Army National Guard will search the landfill in Ault, Colorado.
Gesell says the search may take weeks. It will address an area 25 yards wide and 100 yards long where the trash is about 15-feet deep.
Twenty-three-year-old Logan Hunter Rogers of Cheyenne is charged with involuntary manslaughter and child endangering with a controlled substance in the death of Silas Anthony Ojeda of Cheyenne.
