(Harrisburg) -- Police in Harrisburg are digging up the backyard of a home after a woman told them she had seen a body buried there nearly 20 years ago.
The search is going on in the yard, where investigators started digging around 8 a.m. Monday.
Investigators are using ground-penetrating radar and have dug up to 7 feet in some places.
The search is expected to continue Tuesday. Authorities say it began after a woman who is now in her 20s reported having seen someone bury a body there when she was 4 years old.
Police Chief Pierre Ritter says the search isn't connected to any unsolved case.
Dauphin County Coroner Graham Hetrick says investigators will be removing a tree in case the remains are tied up in its root system.
