Jimmy Hoffa has been missing for 40 years as of Thursday, but a new report says the mob knows where the former Teamster Union president is buried.

Investigative reporter Dan Moldea wrote in a story that appeared Thursday on the website Gang Land News that Hoffa's remains were buried in a New Jersey dump.

Moldea reported that Phillip "Brother" Moscato, the owner of the toxic site under the Pulaski Skyway, told him in interviews before his death last year that the FBI was "on the right track" when they searched his dump in 1975 looking for 55-gallon drum where they thought Hoffa was entombed.

Moscato, who Moldea wrote was connected with alleged mob enforcer Salvatore "Sally Bugs" Briguglio, said Ralph Picardo tipped off the FBI, but agents never found the drum during a three-month search.

Moldea, author of the book "The Hoffa Wars," told the New York Daily News that he believes Hoffa was killed on a farm outside of Detroit and then driven back to New Jersey to be buried in the dump.

"I have not solved the case," Moldea explained. "I've put together the most reasonable scenario of what happened."

The author wrote in Gang Land News that he did not believe Frank "The Irishman" Sheeran was involved in Hoffa's murder, another theory that has been written about.

"As I politely told Robert De Niro last December, who still may play Sheeran in a movie adaption of [Charles] Brandt's book, 'I Heard You Paint Houses,' Sheeran has successfully conned a lot of people despite his conflicting versions of events," he said.

Hoffa's daughter, Barbara Crancer, a retired judge in St. Louis, told the Detroit Free Press this week that the window is closing on ever definitively solving the mystery of her father's disappearance.

"Most of the people that were suspects are gone," Crancer told the newspaper. "I guess it won't be solved. It would be a comfort to find his body, but I don't think we will.

"[The disappearance anniversary is] a sad time for us. If you ever have anyone in your family who is taken away from you by force, you know what a gap it leaves in your heart. You miss them so much."
