Authorities are moving forward on a 50-year-old cold case.

Darlene Fitchett disappeared in 1960. At the time, she lived at 608 Pleasant View Drive in Des Moines.

Last month, police got a tip that Fitchett’s body was buried in the home’s basement.

Investigators scanned the basement trying to determine if they should dig it up. Now police say experts are doing a second scan to further the investigation.
