New information in the investigation of two girls who went missing in 1971 has been released.
Attorney General Marty Jackley confirmed that tests done on skeletal remains found in a 1960 Studebaker last month were of two individuals. That DNA is being sent to the University of North Texas to try and confirm the identities of the remains.
Jackley also says mechanical tests were done on the car. The car was found in third gear, which is the highest gear in the car. Officials say that information means that there was likely no foul play involved.
Pam Jackson and Sherri Miller were last seen heading to a party in rural Union County in 1971. Last month, a 1960 Studebaker believed to be related to the case was found in Brule Creek.
Jackley says it could take anywhere from 30 to 60 days for tests on the DNA to come back.
