(Harrisburg) -- Authorities have ended a search for a possible body in a Harrisburg backyard, a two-day operation that began after a woman came forward with a decades-old tip. 

Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick says nothing was found.

He says authorities were working on a tip from a woman who was credible and said she saw a body being buried in the yard 18 years ago, when she was 4 years old.

The search ended Tuesday after workers removed a large tree from the yard and still found nothing. Authorities say the case will most likely be closed.

Police had said the search wasn't connected to any unsolved case.
