(Pleasantville) -- FBI agents searched a wooded area in Berks County for the third time in just over a year as part of a cold case investigation into the 1979 disappearance of a 16-year-old. 

Robert Keck was last seen by his mother leaving their Upper Saucon home nearly 36 years ago. 

Carl Holzinger, who owns the wooded property near Pleasantville, says investigators told him a woman claims Keck's remains are on the 72-acre plot. 

Holzinger says the woman told investigators she and another teenage girl were involved in Keck's disappearance.  

The FBI declined comment.
