Authorities have searched a single-family home in a northern New Hampshire town near the last known sighting of a college student who disappeared in 2004 after her car crashed, the attorney general’s office said Wednesday.
The attorney general’s office said in a news release that one of the areas searched over the years in Maura Murray’s disappearance included the home. It said state police and the FBI conducted a further inspection.
WMUR-TV showed images of a house and reported that authorities were seen bringing a jackhammer into the home.
Murray, a 21-year-old University of Massachusetts-Amherst nursing student, lied to professors about a death in the family and left campus on Feb. 9, 2004, driving into New Hampshire. She was last seen on Route 112, a road in Haverhill that leads to the White Mountain National Forest. She had crashed her car, which was later found.
The attorney general’s office said the search was being conducted “In cooperation with the current homeowners.”
Authorities who say they have found no evidence connected to a college student who disappeared in 2004 after her car crashed.
Associate Attorney General Jeffery Strelzin said at a news conference Wednesday that authorities found “absolutely nothing” connected to the disappearance of Maura Murray after they cut and removed some concrete in an area where ground-penetrating radar had indicated a disturbance.
Authorities searched several feet down, and all they found was a small piece of possibly pottery or old piping.

Murray’s father believes his daughter is dead, the victim of a crime.
