CNMI sewer checked in search for missing girls

2:26 pm on 7 July 2011

The Northern Marianas public safety commissioner, Ramon Mafnas, says they are now checking parts of the Saipan sewer system as the hunt to locate missing sisters Faloma and Maleina Luhk continues.

The girls disappeared six weeks ago.

Mr Mafnas says they're opening select sewer manholes on Saipan with the help of Commonwealth Utilities Corporation staff.

He wouldn't tell local media why police were now targetting the manholes.
