ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — Authorities have given up the search for three women they believe were killed in Southern California by a pair of convicted sex offenders who were wearing GPS trackers.

Anaheim police Lt. Bob Dunn tells the Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/1kriQO3 ) that too much time has passed since the women vanished and it would be difficult to search several landfills where they may have been buried.

Franc Cano and Steven Dean Gordon are charged with raping and killing Kianna Jackson, Josephine Vargas and Martha Anaya in Orange County last fall while the men were out on probation and wearing monitors.

They also are charged with the death of Jarrae Estepp, whose body was found in a trash-sorting plant.

Anaya's relatives held a brief memorial for her Friday at a landfill.
