Personnel from the Portland Police Department, the Maine Medical Examiner’s Office, Maine State Police and the Maine Warden Service, including K9 cadaver teams, searched Monday, April 25, on Route 52, for additional remains of a Portland woman whose bones were located Saturday, April 16, in that area.

Maine Department of Public Safety spokesperson Steve McCausland confirmed that skeletal remains of Elena Lozada, 24, of Portland, were found April 16, in Northport.

On Monday, McCausland said police were searching for additional remains and possible evidence.

McCausland said Lozada’s mother, Carrie Cronkite, had reported Lozada missing last summer. According to published AP reports, Cronkite said her daughter had started using drugs in her teens and had been treated for depression.

According to a Boston Globe story, Cronkite said police had not notified her of the location where her daughter’s remains were found as it was considered a crime scene. Previous press reports about the discovery of Lozada’s remains quoted police as saying that her bones had been found “in a remote area” of Maine.

McCausland said the Portland Police Department is the primary investigating agency. A call to Portland Police Lt. Gary Rogers on Monday was not returned.
