ATLANTA (AP) — Sheriff’s officials say they have discovered the 1974 Pinto a 22-year-old student was driving on his way back to Auburn University from Georgia when he disappeared more than 45 years ago.

Sheriff James Woodruff of Troup County, Georgia says that Kyle Wade Clinkscales’ car was pulled from a creek around Cusseta, Alabama, on Tuesday.

Inside the car, investigators found what they think are human bones along with identification and credit cards belonging to Clinkscales.

Clinkscales left LaGrange, Georgia, on Jan. 27, 1976, to drive the 45 miles back to Auburn, but never showed up.

Woodruff did not rule out foul play in Clinkscales’ disappearance.
