TWIN OAKS — Authorities discovered some “items of interest” while digging at a residence in southern Delaware County, a state law enforcement official said Wednesday.

Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Jessica Brown declined to identify the items discovered during a dig on Tuesday, but did say they were recovered from the same general area where teams with the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, the OSBI and the state medical examiner’s office searched in April.

That residence belonged to James Larson. Larson is described by authorities as a person of interest in the disappearance of Dustin Carver, 20, of Kansas, OK, the sheriff’s office confirmed at the time of the first dig.

Larson was not in custody Wednesday, the sheriff’s office confirmed.

Brown said the new search was based on a tip received by authorities. Agents from the OSBI and the state medical examiner’s office remain at the residence on Wednesday, she said.

Twin Oaks is located roughly 65 miles east of Tulsa.
