Turkish authorities have previously carried out inspections at Saudi Arabia's consulate and the consul general's residence in Istanbul as part of the investigation.

It was reported last month that investigators had widened their search to Yalova and a forest on the outskirts of Istanbul for the remains of the journalist.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.

After initially saying he had left the consulate alive, weeks later the Saudi administration admitted he was killed there, blaming a rogue group of Saudi operatives.

The killing of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a critic of the crown prince, has strained Saudi Arabia's ties with the West and battered Prince Mohammed's image abroad.
