RUSSELLVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - State and local authorities are back at a home just off Wilson Boulevard in Russellville in their second day of a search for possible infant remains.

According to Russellville Police Chief Chris Hargett, his officers along with the Alabama Bureau of Investigation and Alabama Fire Marshal's office are checking an area an informant brought to their attention about remains being buried there.

Thursday night and Friday morning, HEMSI brought cadaver dogs to search the site.  Chief Hargett says six dogs hit on a six-by-six foot area under a burn pile.

Now, crews are using a backhoe to dig up a specific part of the yard.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office also brought in a ground-penetrating radar to assist in the search.

WHNT News 19 has a crew at the scene.  We'll continue to post updates on and we'll have the very latest Friday on WHNT News 19 at 5:00, 6:00 and 6:30 p.m.
