VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) –Valdosta police are still searching for possible human remains around a condemned house.

Detectives dug and sifted through dirt today in an area where cadaver dogs picked up a scent.

They did find a bone fragment but a Valdosta State University anthropologist says it does not appear to be human.

Thursday Construction crews demolished concrete after getting a tip that a body could be buried there on Mills Street.

Police say a woman disappeared there 21 years ago.

"The dog team that came helped us from South Georgia Search and Rescue indicated that even over a long period of time if this woman was in fact killed in 1989, if her remains are here more than likely it cold be just bones left that the dogs should be able to detect," said Valdosta Police Cmdr. Brian Childress.

The VSU archeology department brought out its ground sonar.

It detected something underground.

They told police it could be a false positive but it indicated where police should focus their search.
