Hoffa search has circus touch

DETROIT, May 25 (UPI) -- There are no clowns or trapeze artists but razing an old barn where someone said Jimmy Hoffa is buried has produced a circus atmosphere in suburban Detroit.

Some of the local establishments are offering their own related attractions. Lu & Ruby's Bar and Grill is featuring a $12.95 Hoffa steak salad with a New York strip steak buried in a field of greens, topped by mushrooms and edible flowers.

A T-shirt for sale reads: "Milford Digs Hoffa, Do You?"

It took only a few hours Wednesday to make toothpicks of the 100-foot-by-30-foot barn on the Hidden Dreams Farm in Milford Township as 50 federal agents combed the area searching for the remains of the former Teamsters boss, who vanished 30 years ago.

Cadaver-sniffing dogs, anthropologists, archaeologists, ground-penetrating radar and other high-tech equipment -- along with agents with shovels in hand - are being used to sift through the area, officials said.

So far, nothing has been found, the FBI told the Detroit Free Press.
