NEW YORK (PIX11)- Eleven and a half years after the terrorist attacks 9/11, the effort to identify human remains resumes on Monday.

60 dump trucks of debris from construction areas around the World Trade Center site will be sifted. It’s the latest effort to provide families with recovered remains.

The last sifting operation took place nearly three years ago.

The search expanded in 2006 when bones were found in a manhole.

There are more than one thousand 9/11 victims, out of close to three thousand, whose remains have not yet been identified.
