GULF SHORES, Ala. (AP) Police investigating the disturbance of protected sea turtle eggs on an Alabama beach have released video showing a woman they want to locate.
Investigators say in a Facebook post they’ve spoken with three of four people shown outside a beachfront condominium in the video on the same night someone dug up a turtle nest.
Gulf Shores police say the three provided “great assistance.” But they’re still looking for an unidentified woman from the video.
Mike Reynolds of the turtle-protection group Share the Beach tells WKRG-TV it appears one of the four is holding what could be sea turtle eggs.
Turtles are protected by federal law, and the nest that was dug up had been marked with a sign and protective barriers. Volunteers found the disturbed nest on Sunday.
