County combs new location in Reiser hunt
Search and rescue teams with dogs and all-terrain vehicles combed both sides of rugged Pinehurst Road in Contra Costa County on Saturday in a new search for the body of 31-year-old Nina Reiser.
Reiser, the mother of two small children, disappeared in Oakland on Sept. 3. Her husband, computer software entrepreneur Hans Reiser, 42, has been charged with her murder.
It was a follow-up to the search on the Oakland side of the hills conducted in September, said Capt. Rick Kovar, of the Contra Costa County Sheriff's office. He said about 50 volunteers, sheriff's deputies, members of the Contra Costa Search and Rescue team and others took part in the search.
Kovar said the search was conducted at the request of the Oakland Police, who believe her body may be found in the area. The area is less than three miles from Hans Reiser's residence.
Reiser pleaded not guilty last week and asked for a speedy trial.
