Pine Bluff police have completed the internal investigation into what caused the delay in sending evidence to the state crime laboratory in the case of Cleashindra Hall, who has been missing for 18 years.

Lt. JoAnn Bates, police spokesman, said Thursday the investigation results have been forwarded to Police Chief Brenda Davis-Jones for her review. No other details on the investigation were released.

On May 9, the Hall family held a memorial service that marked the 18th anniversary of Hall’s disappearance. That day, the police department admitted that the evidence collected more than a month before from the home where then 18-year-old Hall was last seen wasn’t sent to the Arkansas Crime Laboratory in Little Rock until May 8.

Laurell Hall, Cleashindra’s mother, previously said investigators weren’t “aggressive enough” in their March 29 search of a house and property at 5309 Faucett Road, where Hall worked for Larry Amos.
