Jason Mitchell

Most of Friday they spent most of the day digging through the backyard of the house.  Then later on a bomb squad showed up to search the house. 

The police are saying that it is a missing person investigation from out of Salem-Winston, but nothing more than that.  No one knows who the missing person is they are searching for.

Although neighbors and the media have been asking for an explanation the police are not talking, and have closed off the street near the home. 

The police searched in a shed and then began searching the home again the following day.  So far, no one has been taken into custody.
  
Neighbors state that a Jason Mitchell, 34, lives in the home and that he kept to himself and was known to “mess in his yard and make fires.”
