Dive teams and a sonar-equipped boat have searched the Gunnison River for a 34-year-old Grand Junction woman who hasn't been seen in more than a month.

Crews searched about 15 miles of the river yesterday in hopes of finding clues in the disappearance of Paige Birgfeld.

She was last seen June 28th.

Investigators and volunteers have found Birgfeld's burned-out car and an unloaded handgun not far from the vehicle. They've also recovered some of her personal belongings -- but have declined to identify them.

On Saturday, search dogs released near the place where the car was found led investigators to a nearby RV dealership where a "person of interest" in the case is employed.

Investigators have not said what the dogs found, if anything.
