William Belcher, associate professor of anthropology, and anthropology students are part of a large-scale search for Linda Dillard, a longtime missing woman, due to their expertise. This field work is an example of an experiential learning opportunity provided for students in the College of Arts and Sciences.

"It was good experience for them and it also was what in the military we would call a 'force multiplier'", Belcher, formerly with the Department of Defense, said, according to Channel 8 news. "It enabled us to have qualified students that could distinguish human and non-human bone on these teams and follow up with that."
