The State Police are still working hard to find Laura Garza, a Brooklyn woman who has been missing since early this month. Investigators suspect that a convicted sex offender, Michael Mele, she met at Marquee may have killed her, after they found blood in his car and noticed a piece of carpet in his apartment was missing (it was later found, bleached, off a highway). Divers broke through 4 inches of ice on Lake Echo in upstate Orange County (it's close to Mele's Wallkill apartment) and took turns searching its depths. The police also searched his apartment again. Mele is in jail, held on parole violations.
