CRYSTAL, Minn. (AP) – Police are searching a home in Crystalafter getting a report of a possible suspicious death of an infant years ago.

Crystal Police Chief John Banick says two people who live at the home have been arrested, but a body has yet to be found.

The Star Tribune reports a 30-year-old man and a 28-year-old woman are being held without bail on suspicion of manslaughter of a fetus, according to a Hennepin County jail log.

State records show the two had a son in April 2004.

Police say they are conducting an “extensive search” for the infant. That search includes digging on the property.

Police learned of the possible death Tuesday while conducting a domestic assault investigation.
