Detectives still investigating remains found off Carolina Beach Road

More than three weeks after human remains were found off of Carolina Beach Road, detectives are still awaiting DNA results to identify the victims. While the WPD searches for clues, the sister of a local missing person is searching for answers. Lisa Valentino flew in from Long Island last night. She's the sister of Allison Jackson Foy, who went missing July of 2006. Valentino brought flowers today to the site that may be where her missing sister was recovered in late April. Foy went missing about one mile from where the bones were found. While it's not confirmed that set of remains are Allison Foy, her sister believes there's a strong chance they might be. Valentino is hoping that visiting the site will help bring some closure. "I really kind of needed to see for myself where these remains were and like I said, in my heart I've always known my sister wasn't here anymore, and this seems like its probably a pretty good fit, and I want to just pay my respects," said Valentino. The WPD won't comment on Foy's case until there is DNA identification. The Medical Examiners Office has already confirmed that Foy's file was one of at least two sent to them by the Wilmington police. The detective handling the case says DNA results should come back within the next 30 days. Wilmington Police are investigating the case as a homicide, but would not say if there were any suspects at this time.
