Dozens of Pine Bluff police and crime scene technicians are at the scene of a house in west Pine Bluff where a warrant was served Thursday morning.

The property, at 5309 Faucett Road, belongs to Larry Amos. Missing Pine Bluff woman Cleashindra Hall, then 18, worked part time in Amos’ home office and was seen at the property before she went missing on May 9, 1994. Many neighbors reported that Amos began remodeling the house after Hall’s disappearance and has continued to work on the property for many years
