Police on New York's Long Island say they've found lip gloss possibly linked to a missing New Jersey prostitute but no sign of her remains.

Shannan Gilbert's May 2010 disappearance from a gated community on Long Island's south shore led to the unexpected discovery of what would eventually become 10 victims of a suspected serial killer.

Police found her jeans, shoes, purse, ID and cellphone earlier this week in a marshland near where she disappeared. On Friday, they said they found lip gloss only steps from where the purse was found.

Police say they suspect she may have fallen into a hidden drainage ditch and drowned. They say the deaths of the 10 people and Gilbert's disappearance appear to be a coincidence.

Police say they'll resume searching on Monday.
