Authorities searching for Jimmy Hoffa's body in northern Oakland Co.

Here we go again. There are choppers flying over filming the dig this time. From WXYZ TV:

More on why the feds are on this piece of land from CBS News:

The dig -- the latest in what's been nearly a 40-year search -- is the result of extensive FBI interviews with a former mobster. Mafia underboss Tony Zerilli told WDIV-TV in an exclusive interview earlier this year that Hoffa was buried in a shallow grave on the property which is believed to be owned by a family with mob ties. Zerilli, who was second in command with the Detroit mafia, said he was told by a mafia enforcer that Hoffa was abducted at a restaurant in Bloomfield Township and brought to Buhl Road In Oakland Township and buried. The original plan, according to the mobster, was to bury him there temporarily and then take his body up to northern Michigan and bury him at a hunting lodge.
