COPS launched a probe after human remains were found near a Land Rover factory – just three miles from where the missing ‘milk carton’ children were last seen in 1996.

Detectives excavate the site in Solihull, West Midlands, near where schoolchildren Patrick Warren and David Spencer went missing 24 years ago.

It comes after construction workers made the grim discovery near the Jaguar factory on Wednesday.

West Midlands Police cordoned off the site and confirmed today that “the bones will be subject to forensic and archaeological analysis”.

This morning, forensic officers formed a line before conducting a fingertip search of the site.

Search teams could be seen placing markers as archaeologists surveyed the area.

A blue police tent was placed in front of an excavator, while part of the vehicle’s tracks were covered with tarpaulins

Police say there is no evidence a crime has been committed.

However, it is reported that officers have already searched the area in connection with the disappearance of schoolchildren David, 13, and Patrick, 11.

The young people, who went missing on Boxing Day 1996, have been dubbed the ‘milk carton children’ after their faces were put on bottles of milk in the hope that someone would provide them with information.

The bones will now be analyzed.

Cops say archaeological tests will also be carried out in an attempt to uncover the age of the bones.

A force spokesperson said: “We are investigating the discovery of human remains on land off Damson Parkway in Solihull on Wednesday.

“The area has been cordoned off for further research.

“The bones will be subjected to forensic and archaeological analyzes.

“There is no information linking them to a criminal investigation at this point. ”

In August, two garbage bags of human bones were found in the River Stour in Sudbury, Suffolk.

The bags were reportedly thrown into the water after being carried in a shopping cart.

The mother of missing aviator Corrie McKeague feared the bones were her son’s remains.

But officers were quickly able to tell Nicola Urquhart that the discovery was unrelated to Corrie, 23.

Corrie went missing during a party in Bury St Edmunds, approximately 16 miles north of Sudbury, on September 24, 2016. He was stationed at RAF Honington.

The investigation into his disappearance was entrusted to cold case detectives in 2018.

Suffolk Police said the ‘most likely scenario’ is he went into a trash can which was dumped into a truck and ended up in the waste disposal process.

No trace of him has been found.
