SIOUX FALLS, SD -
New information regarding the investigation into the disappearance of the two girls back in 1971 has been released.
Pam Jackson and Sherri Miller were last seen heading to a party in rural Union County. On September 23, a 1960 Studebaker believed to be related to the case was found along Brule Creek.
According to Attorney General Marty Jackley, mechanical tests on the Studebaker found it was in third gear, the highest gear in the car. That leads authorities to believe foul play wasn't likely involved in the girls' disappearance.
The skeletal remains were sent to a forensic pathologist in Sioux Falls. The results confirmed that they belonged to two different individuals.
The bones have been sent for DNA testing at the University of Texas, with the hopes of identification. The testing can take anywhere from 30-90 days before getting results.
The investigation is ongoing.
