Authorities on Monday were digging in the ground at a home near the Arkansas border that's connected to the Morgan Nick case, according to KSFM Channel 5 news.

The FBI and the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation were reportedly digging around a well at a home on Northwest Ninth Street in Spiro, Okla., a town of about 2,100 people in the southwest part of the Fort Smith metro area.

LeFlore County Sheriff Rob Seale said authorities received a tip Monday morning that led them to the residence, KSFM reported. Further details were not released.

Investigators searched the property in 2010 in connection with the disappearance of Nick but made no arrests and found no evidence related to the case, according to KSFM. Nick was abducted in Alma, Ark., which is on the northeast side of the Fort Smith metro area, in 1995. She was 6 years old.

The case remains unsolved.
