New York City officials are planning to search through material excavated from around the World Trade Center site for any remains of Sept. 11 victims.
The three-month endeavor is scheduled to start Friday at the Fresh Kills landfill on Staten Island. The material being searched was taken from the area around ground zero in the last two years.
If there are any possible remains found, the material will undergo testing at the city medical examiner's office.
The search is expected to cost $1.4 million.
