Local Authorities in Michigan Dig for Jimmy Hoffa

Calling Jimmy Hoffa's disappearance "an open wound" for Detroit, officials say they're hopeful a dig in northern Oakland County, Mich., will turn up the body of the former Teamsters boss.

"It's my fondest hope that we can give … closure not just to the Hoffa family, but also to the community and stop tearing that scab off with every new lead and bring some conclusion," Oakland County Sheriff Michael Bouchard said just after 11 a.m. today, the first official word about what's happening at the dig in Oakland Township that began this morning. "It's long overdue."
