Investigators in Central Texas want to know if bones dug up from a vacant lot are human remains from the 1960s.

Bryan police on Monday announced the criminal investigation and the excavation. No information was released on how police late last week learned about the bones.

Officers spent part of Monday digging at the scene in an excavation that could continue several days.

Police say the bones will be sent to a lab to determine if the remains are human or animal.

Further details on the investigation were not immediately released.
