(SAN BERNARDINO, Calif.) — An FBI dive team was searching a lake Thursday near the site of the terror attack in San Bernardino, California.

One official has told ABC News that investigators are searching Seccombe Lake Park as a precaution, to ensure that no evidence was missed. They are not searching for any particular piece of evidence, the official said.

The search comes after the FBI received information that the couple spent time at the pond, according to a senior official with knowledge of the investigation.

The dive teams are looking to see if they left or stored anything at the pond, the senior official said.

The search comes eight days after the attack, which left 14 people dead and 21 others injured.

Acquaintances of Syed Farook, one of the shooters in the San Bernardino attack, tell ABC News that they are struggling to find a place to bury Farook and his wife Tashfeen Malik. Each cemetery that has been approached thus far has refused to inter the couple for fear of vandalism and reprisals.
