FBI searching Ocean County, NJ woods in 1970s missing persons' case: Bob Brooks reports on Action News at 6 p.m., November 28, 2017

STAFFORD TWP., N.J. (WPVI) -- FBI agents are searching the woods in New Jersey in connection with a missing persons' case that dates back to the 1970s, sources tell Action News.

Investigators are looking for evidence on Mayetta Landing Road near Route 9 in in the Edwin B. Forsythe National Wildlife Refuge. That's located in Stafford Township in Ocean County.

They are working on the case of two developmentally disabled boys -- Steven Anderson, then 17, and David Williams, then 12 -- who disappeared in April 1975 from the New Lisbon State School in Burlington County.

The FBI previously released age-progressed photos that show what they would have looked like at 48 and 56 years old.

There's no word yet if FBI agents have found anything at that location.
