Authorities are searching a pond and a manure pile on a community college campus in Cheyenne for the remains of a missing 13-month-old boy.

Laramie County Sheriff's Lt. Don Hollingshead says three volunteer divers were searching the murky pond Wednesday. The pond on the Laramie County Community College campus is about 1 acre in size and 10 to 30 feet deep.

Others were searching a nearby manure pile.

They're looking for the body of Silas Ojeda.

Authorities had earlier searched a landfill near Ault.

Hollingshead says the new search was undertaken after detectives received new information. He declined to provide specifics.
