GUTTENBERG - Prosecutors confirm that they were searching for what could be human remains on a stretch of Park Avenue in Guttenberg today.

Residents say they spent most of the day watching police and only receiving bits and pieces of information about what was going on. The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office would only reveal that it, along with the Guttenberg police, was executing a search warrant looking for what could be human remains.

Onlookers knew police were digging and a property manager showed News 12 New Jersey pieces of a yard had been turned over in several locations.

Hudson County authorities are expected to release more information Thursday.
