OAKLAND TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — FBI agents plan a third day of digging today in suburban Detroit for the remains of former Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa, who disappeared 38 years ago.

Authorities have pursued multiple leads into Hoffa’s whereabouts since his disappearance in 1975.

He was last seen outside an Oakland County restaurant where he was to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain.

The latest tip about Hoffa’s remains came from reputed Mafia captain Tony Zerilli, who, through his lawyer, said Hoffa was buried beneath a concrete slab in a barn north of Detroit.
