The Arlington County Fire Department was among the numerous agencies assisting with a search for human remains at the Roaches Run Waterfowl Sanctuary near Reagan National Airport today.
The search is linked to the discovery of a human skull and other bones along Four Mile Run in Arlington, near the GW Parkway.
“After multiple searches over several days, three (3) human bones to include a skull, were recovered from the creek bed,” U.S. Park Police said on July 19. “The scene spanned approximately 200 yards, suggesting that the bones may have washed into the area during heavy storms.”
During that search, a D.C. fire department cadaver dog was injured and airlifted to an emergency vet. That dog, K-9 Kylie, was recently released for full duty and was back searching around Roaches Run today, according to a video posted by D.C. Fire and EMS (below).
Today’s search also involved divers, but did not turn up anything and has since been called off, according to reporters on scene. More via social media:

US Park Police Capt Scott Brecht says they’ve called off the search permanently for remains associated with a skull found near National Airport. Dogs hit on a possible spot on Roaches Run, but divers found nothing. Brecht said it’s likely the skull of a 40-50 yr old white male. pic.twitter.com/hCIOZtwpYQ
