Teeth found at Haut de la Garenne


UPDATE FOR MEDIA ISSUED AT 8.30 AM ON TUESDAY 22 APRIL

A police spokesperson said:

The search operation continues at Haut De La Garenne, concentrating on cellar rooms three and four, and the area indicated outside by a member of the public as a pit dug by him.

As a result of indications from the dogs working with the enquiry team, forensic archaeologists searched an area of the cellar rooms three and four and have discovered some more bone fragments and two 'milk teeth' from a child or children. 

We cannot be sure at this stage if the bone is human or animal and it will be forwarded to the UK for tests.

The teeth could have come from the same child although further tests will be necessary to try and ascertain if that is the case, and how the teeth might have come to be there.
