DECATUR -- Police may have found a lead in a 28-year old missing child case. Detectives and the FBI have been in the 2100-block of Charles since Tuesday. They're digging and sifting through dirt.

Sources say the missing child case is from 1985. 5-year old T.J. Davison disappeared from his aunt's car. She said she stepped inside the Brettwood Village Shopping Center for a bit, and when she got back, T.J. was gone.

Neighbors say the aunt used to live on the lot where authorities have been digging. The home burned down several years ago.
