Since legendary Teamsters union leader Jimmy Hoffa disappeared more than 37 years ago, rumors have placed his body anywhere from under sports stadiums to in bodies of water.

Now investigators are looking at soil samples from the ground beneath a suburban Detroit driveway after police fielded a tip that Hoffa was buried there about 35 years ago, Roseville, Mich. police told CBS News.

The city’s Police Chief James Berlin said a man called to say he saw a body buried at the spot about 35 years ago and thinks it may have been Hoffa. "We are not claiming it's Jimmy Hoffa, the timeline doesn't add up," Berlin said. "We're investigating a body that may be at the location."

Hoffa was last seen outside a suburban Detroit restaurant July 30, 1975. He was scheduled to meet with a New Jersey Teamsters boss and a Detroit Mafia captain. His body has never been discovered.

The Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has used ground penetrating radar to examine the spot beneath the Roseville driveway. The agency discovered "that the earth had been disturbed at some point in time," Berlin said.
