    Clues were scarce as police hunted around a Miami Gardens canal to find Lynda Meier.

    While the search continues for Lynda Robin Meier, authorities are bringing a halt to looking for the missing woman near a Miami Gardens canal.

    Detectives and dogs have been digging in a small area near Northwest 207th Street and 41st Avenue for the past three days, but have found very little evidence that Meier's body might be buried in the ground.

    Hallandale Beach Police said they found "a few things," but did not disclose what those items were.

    Dogs Sniff Out Clues in Meier's Case

    [MI] Dogs Sniff Out Clues in Meier's Case
    The second day of searching near a canal in Miami-Dade may have turned up a clue in the Lynda Meier's case.

    Authorities had said they planned to mine the area for at least the next week after cadaver dogs appeared to have honed in on something underneath the surface. Investigators thought it might be human remains.

    But the dig turned up no body, detectives said Thursday before calling off the search.

    Surveillance of Missing Hallandale Woman

    [MI] Surveillance of Missing Hallandale Woman
    Lynda Meier has been missing since June 4, 2010. In newly released surveillance video, she is seen using her debit card at an ATM. Two persons of interest are seen using the same card after she went missing.

    Investigators took some soil samples, which will be analyzed. They are not ruling out the possibility that there might have been a body there at some point.

    Meier, 40, was last seen leaving her Hallandale Beach condo building on June 4, 2010.

    Meier's car, a red Cadillac Escalade, was found a week after her disappearance, abandoned in a parking lot in Opa-Locka.

    Two men were later captured on video using Meier's ATM card at two different Miami banks that same day, and police later named those men as persons of interest.

    Neither of the men -- who police identified as Antwan Kennedy and Dallas King -- has been charged with a crime related to Meier's disappearance.
