UNITY TOWNSHIP, Pa. — The son of a missing Latrobe woman issued a plea for information in the disappearance of his mother, Cassandra Gross.
"My family and I are extremely devastated over this," Gross' son, Brandon Diebold, said in a video message given to Channel 11 by Pennsylvania State Police.
Diebold also urged anyone with information to contact state police.
Crews resumed the search in Unity Cemetery Friday for clues in the disappearance of Gross.
State police have not said what specifically led them to this area.
Gross, 51, was reported missing April 10. State police found her charred vehicle in a wooded area later that day.
In June, state police previously searched the same cemetery. Investigators told Channel 11 about 30 people from Professional Searchers Rapid Response Services out of Ohio, along with Westmoreland Fire and Rescue personnel searched in the area.
State police have not said if they found anything in the previous search of the area.
