DaShad Smith, a 19-year-old transgender teen, has been missing since November 20, 2012.
The Charlottesville Police first searched the landfill, located at 2075 Charles City Road, in December 2012.
Police wouldn't say exactly what they were looking for, beyond clues that will help locate DaShad.
Workers at the landfill are now removing the top layer of dirt so officers can take a closer look at the landfill Tuesday. Crews began removing dirt Friday, and Police had planned to begin their search Monday; however, landfill crews had to extend their removal efforts into Monday.
Investigators said Smith was supposed to meet a friend, Erik T. McFadden, the evening of November 20, 2012.
McFadden told police that he had phone contact with Smith that night, but he never met up with him. McFadden has since left town, and has been named a person of interest in the case.
"The person of interest in this case or what may eventually become a suspect in this case is gathering info the same way you are, and we want to be limited in the juncture of the investigation because we really don't know who we're dealing with," Charlottesville Police Department Chief Tim Longo said in December.
Chief Longo added that as time passes, the hope of finding DaShad alive starts to fade, but vowed to continue searching until DaShad is brought home to his family.
The Charlottesville Area Crime Stoppers has received an anonymous donation to be used as part of a $10,000 reward in helping to find DaShad Smith.
