Search underway to find remains of Hoffa

Posted: Updated:

Roseville, MI (WDIV) - Another search is underway to find the remains of teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa.

This morning authorities started digging into the concrete floor of a shed in a neighborhood in Roseville, Michigan near Detroit.

Police received a tip from a man who claimed he saw a body being buried there 35 years ago.

Police will test soil samples for human decomposition.

The results could be ready sometime next week.

Hoffa disappeared July 30th, 1975, and is presumed dead. However, his body has never been found.

He was last seen about outside a restaurant 30 miles from where authorities are digging today.

Hoffa was supposed to meet with a New Jersey teamsters boss and a Detroit mafia captain.
