A task force of several law enforcement agencies is looking for a wooded property where it is believed that several girls could be buried.

"It's bittersweet, but if we find these remains, we could close those families," Warren Police Commissioner William Dwyer told Fox News.
The site, located near 23 Mile Road and North Avenue in Warren, is in the same area where the police found the remains of 13-year-old Cindy Zarzycki in 2008. Convicted child murderer Arthur Nelson Ream led the police to Zarzycki's body.
The girl was missing in 1986 after meeting Ream, her friend's father and murderer, with a milk queen.
Arthur Ream, 68-year-old pedophile sentenced, is considered a person of interest for the disappearance of several girls in Michigan.

Ream, a convicted pedophile The 15-year-old is currently serving a life sentence for Zarzycki's assassination.
Other cold cases that could be associated with Ream are Kellie Brownlee of Novi, who was 17 when she disappeared in 1982; and Kim Larrow, who disappeared from Canton Township in 1981 at the age of 15, reported WDIV.
While Dwyer did not elaborate what triggered the search that began on Monday, he said they had interviewed Ream before the start of the investigation.  FOX2 Detroit said crews had been seen on the property with a digger, shovels and other tools.
The search of the property could take several days, the police said.
The Task Force, which investigates what might be hidden under the dirt of the farm, consists of the Warren Police Department, the FBI, the Michigan State Police, and the Macomb County Sheriff's Office ,
King was born on Sept. 15, 1979, during a stay with her grandparents in Warren, Michigan. The girl had intended to sleep in her friend's house across the street. At 11:30 am That evening, however, King called her sister from a public telephone near her grandparents' apartment.
