Amanda Butterfield reportingPolice chief Rick Dinse said the search for Lori Hacking at the Salt Lake landfill will resume Wednesday, when cadaver dogs from Duchesne County are available.

The dogs have been worked for the past seven days straight, so if they were sent to the landfill tonight to search for Lori, they may not be at peak performance.

Early last week, the dogs were taken to the Salt Lake landfill after a tip came in from the Hackings neighbor, that his garbage can might have been used to dispose of a body.

The dogs searched the landfill for three straight nights . They were then called off to several other more urgent cases, including a search in Green River, Park City, and for a missing boy scout in the High Uintas, all without a break.

This morning Salt Lake Police contacted the county, asking when the dogs will be rested and ready.

Today the dogs will be drilled to determine their efficiency, and it will be up to police to decide when they want to go back out to the landfill with the K-9's.
