GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - State police say car parts recently discovered in Genesee County belonged to an old AMC Gremlin, but no vehicle identification number was found.
The parts got the attention of a task force that's trying to solve a series of child abductions and killings in Oakland County in the 1970s. One of the four children was seen talking to a man in a blue Gremlin.
State police Lt. Mike Shaw said Thursday that the Gremlin parts found in Grand Blanc Township, near Flint, were blue. He says any uncertainty about the parts doesn't hurt the ongoing investigation. The parts still are being examined.
Shaw says investigators also are following up with people who leased the property in the 1970s. Anyone with information can call (800) 991-8477.
