Dogs used in final search for women's remains in Panama

A Dutch team with with tracker dogs is in Panama for the second time to look for the remains of Dutch tourists Lisanne Froon and Kris Kremers. The team of six dogs and six investigators left for Panama on Saturday to join a Panamanian search team and three other Dutch experts.

The first tracker dog team from last year came home empty handed. Now that remains of the girls have been found along the back of a river, the search area is reduced making the job easier for the dogs.

It was recently announced that this month's Panamanian search will be the final one. The spokesperson of the Froon family says that the family does not intend to travel to Panama.
"We are waiting to see what happens this week."

The girls disappeared without a trace in the area of Boquete, Panama in April 2014. They were last seen leaving their guest house for a nature walk. It is still unclear what happened to them.
