WATERTOWN, S.D. – South Dakota officials believe they have a major break in a decades old cold case.

In 1971, two teenage girls, Cheryl Miller and Pamella Jackson, disappeared on their way to a party.

This week, a fisherman found the girls’ 1960 Studebaker Lark at the bottom of a creek.

Officials have confirmed that skeletal remains were found and they are currently testing the remains and processing other evidence.

Investigators hope it’s a discovery that will lead to answers on what actually happened.

In 2004, clothes, bones, a purse and other items belonging to the teens were found on a nearby farm.

The landowner was indicted in connection to the girls’ disappearance but the charges were later dropped.
