LANSING, Mich. (WILX) - The Federal Bureau of Investigations, the Michigan State Police, and the Lansing Police Department conducted a search of a Lansing home on Thursday. Detectives were first spotted around 10 a.m. at an abandoned house on Reo Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Street.

News 10 learned the house on Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard has been abandoned for several years.

Lansing police say they’re working with the FBI on an old case. It’s time-sensitive because the house is scheduled to be bulldozed.

In broad day light Lansing Police, the FBI and State Police searched the home for about 3 hours. More than 20 people looked on as investigators tore through this backyard and inside.

Families of two different missing people in the city showed up, wondering if their loved ones may have been found. An LPD detective told family members that isn’t why they’re there. However, they wouldn’t give any further explanation, saying only that they’re working on it’s an old case.

K-9′s sniffed the backyard as investigators came out of the house with at least one computer tower. The FBI used their evidence lab for further evaluations and a 360 degree camera to surveil the yard. They searched the garage as well but say it’s not an active scene and there’s no other information they can give at this time.

After taking possible evidence out of the house and the backyard, the FBI packed up the mobile lab from the scene at around 1 p.m.
