TENNESSEE CITY, Tenn. (WTVF) — After a couple of days off, Tennessee Bureau of Investigation special agents are back out in Dickson County searching for the remains of 5-year-old Joe Clyde Daniels.

At this point, it’s unclear what they’ve found. They appear to have collected items for testing, but what, we don't know.

The search of the property around the grandparent's home in Dickson County began last Thursday and agents returned again Tuesday morning.

Remember, this is where Joe Clyde disappeared more than two years ago.

Now agents were off the past couple of days, but a patrol officer was posted to secure the area. Agents have been removing brush and digging holes on the property, located off Garner Creek Road.

Joe Clyde's father, Joseph, is charged with homicide after he confessed to killing the boy – though he's recanted that confession. The boy’s mother, Krystal, is charged with aggravated child neglect. Both are locked up awaiting trial.

A big key for the prosecution would be to locate Joe Clyde's remains. I'm told agents may well plan to dig up the entire property there and could be on site through the week.
