Police are standing watch over a suburban Detroit driveway where authorities have been told the body of former missing Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa may have been buried.

The curious are walking or driving Thursday by the Roseville home where state officials plan to take soil samples Friday in the search for human decomposition.

Police recently received a tip from a man who said he saw a body buried there approximately 35 years ago. Hoffa was last seen on July 30, 1975, outside a suburban Detroit restaurant. His body has not been found.

Cindi Frank snapped cellphone photos Thursday of the backyard cordoned off with yellow police tape. The 57-year-old Roseville resident says her father was a Teamsters driver and Hoffa's disappearance and numerous searches always have interested her family.
