FBI descends on home in missing woman case

The FBI is conducting a dig at the home of a Brooklyn couple linked to the disappearance of a court reporter, police say.

Investigators are digging up the basement and backyard at the Seagate home of Dmitry and Julia Yakov-Levi, who have been charged with stealing Irina Maleajick's identity and credit card. Maleajick, a 47-year-old court reporter, went missing two years ago.

Authorities say Maleajick was last seen in 2007 when a security camera captured her leaving her apartment building in Brighton Beach.
