SAYLORSBURG, Pa. (AP) - State police say they’ve finished digging up the yard at a northeastern Pennsylvania home, and a coroner says bones found there are now being analyzed.

The search warrant for the digging in Ross Township, Monroe County is sealed and police said little about it while spending nine days in the yard, wrapping up Wednesday.

However police have told the mother of Holly Grim, a 41-year-old Lehigh County woman last seen in 2013, that the search may be connected to her disappearance.

Lt. Joseph Sokolofski, of the Bethlehem barracks, says Grim was a co-worker of a man who lived in the house. That man hasn’t been charged, but is among hundreds of people police say they’ve asked about Grim.

Monroe County Coroner Robert Allen says unspecified tests on the bones will take three to four weeks.
