NEW YORK (AP) _ Recovery workers completed their search Monday at a badly damaged building across from the World Trade Center site but found no human remains, fire officials said.

Firefighters began searching the Deutsche Bank building, located across the street from where the south tower once stood, nearly two weeks ago. Officials had believed the building could contain the final remains from the Sept. 11 terrorist attack.

The week before the search began, the remains of about a dozen people were found in two other damaged buildings near ground zero.

Saul Cassano, chief of operations for the Fire Department of New York, said debris from the Deutsche Bank building was hauled to a Staten Island landfill, where it will be sifted for any remains that were missed during the search.

Falling debris from the attack tore a gash in the facade of the 40-story building.
