CLAY, N.Y. (AP) - Nearly 100 law enforcement officers and volunteers have resumed the search in a Syracuse suburb for a 20-year-old college student missing since returning home for the Thanksgiving break last week.

Onondaga County sheriff's Sgt. John Marshall says the search in the town of Clay for Jenni-Lyn Watson resumed Friday morning, with 60 officers from various police agencies being joined by 30 civilian volunteers.

Authorities say Watson went missing last Friday, a day after arriving at her family's home north of Syracuse. Marshall says Friday's search is focusing on a wooded area near Watson's home.

Watson, a junior dance major at Mercyhurst College in Erie, Pa., is described as 5-foot-2 and 100 pounds, with dark blonde hair and brown eyes.
