OAK BEACH, N.Y. (AP/WCBS 880) – Investigators on Long Island are set to resume the search for possible victims of a serial killer on Monday.

LISTEN: WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall reports on the search

Suffolk County police are shutting down several miles of the Ocean Parkway from the Nassau County line eastward after a fifth set of human remains were found along the highway that leads to Jones Beach last week.

That victim has not been identified.

The bodies of four women were found in December. Police found all five while searching for a missing prostitute last seen in the area last May. She remains missing.

Police academy recruits, canine units, the marine bureau and emergency services units are involved. Local volunteer firefighters will aid in the search.

The area is thick with underbrush and searchers have found it difficult terrain to maneuver.
