Search dogs pick up scent in Trevino search, no body recovered

Five cadaver dogs were brought onto Keller Lake in Maplewood Wednesday as law enforcement returned to the area for the third straight day in the search for Kira Trevino.

The Ramsey County sheriff's water patrol team drilled several holes in the lake Tuesday. FOX9 reports the dogs signaled to two holes, about 200 yards apart. There are 49 holes in the lake.

The Star Tribune reports family friends observed from the shoreline as authorities dropped sonar cameras into each hole, but never sent divers back in the water. Crews wrapped up Wednesday's search around 2 p.m.

Keller Lake Regional Park has been the focus of search efforts after a plastic bag was found, containing a bloody pillow that matched Kira's DNA.

On Monday, sheriff's deputies found a jacket on the bank of a creek at the southern end of the lake. Volunteers also turned over a number of "items of interest" to authorities during a search last weekend, although police could not confirm if they are related to the murder case.

Kira Trevino, 30, is presumed dead by authorities after blood was found in her car and at the Trevino’s home. Her husband, 39-year-old Jeffery Trevino, faces charges of second-degree murder.
